The Citradels are self-releasing their ninth album “Fuck The Hits: Vol. 1”, changing up their recording process and musical style once again. The culmination of roughly 18 months work, the album intermingles 60s pop harmony and structures with synthesis and dense soundscapes. FTH v1 is a collection of love songs for people who can’t write love songs. Lyrically, it is as simplistic or dark as the listener cares to read into. With a nod to conventional mid 60s pop structure, these songs clock in at around two or three minutes. Lush arrangements and traditional instrumentation is augmented with otherworldly, inorganic sounds and samples. “Fuck The Hits: Vol. 1” is a sonically diverse journey that will reward repeated listens.
