"Citified’s tendency to create unique moments within songs is what makes their music stand out and it’s “Read Like a Number” that ends up being the crown jewel of the record...a band who bears repeated, careful listens revealing a divine craft for layered production." - Aquarium Drunkard - J. Neas


"If anything, this is well-considered pop music, capped by sudden moments of phosphorescence and careful moments of comedown. Oh, and it's very good." - The Independent Weekly - Grayson Currin


"Perfectly haunting, dream-like music suitable for a cup of coffee on a rainy day, getting through a horrendous breakup, or enjoyable within the intimate, sufficiently dark Galaxy Hut...their kicks are pretty fascinating" - Express (The Washington Post)


"... a sonic masterpiece of nine introspective tunes. ... gorgeously layered guitars, pulsating bass lines, eclectic, pristine percussions and snares, and lush, romantic vocal hues. The songs are short, yet precise and quite fervent and gripping. ... Inspiring and captivating, Citified is a sonic treat guaranteed to let you soar into a higher stratosphere, all in debt to this fantastic wall of sound they found and created in Duck-Kee studios in Mebane, NC. Bravo!" - Southeast Performer

Bio

It makes sense that in a year following a reunion by one of the highlights of shoegaze, My Bloody Valentine, and a late-period masterpiece by the former Red House Painter Mark Kozelek (as Sun Kil Moon), that Greensboro, North Carolina’s Citified would return with Absence–a record that splits the difference between the softly driven lyrical work of the latter and the hazy crunch of the former. Think about Swervedriver’s gift for finding the classic pop and rock structures beneath the murk of shoegaze and you’ve hit exactly upon what Citified have created in their third release, their strongest outing yet.

Working again with engineer Jerry Kee (Superchunk, Portastatic, Kingsbury Manx) at his Duck-Kee studio in Mebane, North Carolina, the band created an even more layered and thorough work than on any prior release.
