New York City indie rock quartet Citris will reissue their debut album, Panic in Hampton Bays, on February 24 via New Professor Music. The evocative 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. Picked up by LA punk label New Professor Music, the original release is no longer available and the reissue features brand new standout single “Coco Chanel”. The band previously released the video for lead single “Little Scars”. Today they share their rendition of “Pedestrian At Best” by fellow indie-punk songwriter Courtney Barnett, incorporating their signature harmonies and lush guitar work.

Singer, guitarist and songwriter 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.
