” …some of the most infectious power-pop riffs this side of an Elastica record.” – Blackbook
“ …shimmering, defiant (…) It’s mesmerizing…” – Uproxx
“It’s a hidden gem of a rock record, awash in distorted guitars and undulating harmonies…” – CLRYVNT
This Friday, New York City indie rock quartet Citris will release the reissue of their debut album, Panic in Hampton Bays via New Professor Music. The evocative album title, which juxtaposes anxiety and a holiday getaway, is the central metaphor for this muscular, melodic record. Themes of mental illness, emotional abuse, and the inward search for meaning in the middle of the maelstrom also run throughout. The album, streaming in full with Ghettoblaster Magazine today, features standout earworm single “Little Scars” as well as a brand new album bonus track “Coco Chanel”. The playful video for “Coco Chanel” debuted with BlackBook Magazine and below.

Singer, guitarist and songwriter Angelina Torreano shares:
Coco Chanel is about wanting a love that never fades and comparing it to a Coco Chanel perfume. It inevitably wears off but one can always remember the smell of the perfume because of their love and identification with the scent. In lots of ways, love is like perfume; you have to apply and reapply. You pick the scent that best fits your personality and your identity and you run with it. Some get old, some are timeless. Coco Chanel is timeless. This song seeks a timeless and classic love and references the old loves as apart of the journey to the most ideal love. It’s a nod and wink to the past and a dance to the future.
Frontwoman Angelina Torreano forms the core of Citris with guitarist and producer Chris Krasnow. The 24 year old New York natives met in the fertile music scene of Purchase, NY, which has produced such beloved artists as Regina Spektor, Dan Deacon, and Mitski. (Torreano also starred in the music video for Mitski’s underground classic track “I Want You.”) Together, the pair set Torreano’s searching lyrics to an onslaught of distorted guitars and drums that recall 90s rock greats like Hole, Garbage and Veruca Salt, as well as contemporaries like Dilly Dally, Bully and Courtney Barnett. Torreano and Krasnow play all the instruments on the album – live, the band is rounded out by drummer Clint Mobley and bassist Gianluca Minucci.
