Kitsuné, a record label and clothing brand out of Paris, has been building quite a force of artists including the likes of Two Door Cinema Club and Is Tropical. Citizens! debuted late last year with True Romance and its hard-hitting sentimentality. The song begins with a few simple piano chords that usher in a myriad of instruments that build the intensity, bolstered by the love-struck theme.
Oh my love
Keep your eyes on the road
I am a slave to the lights up ahead
What kind of minds are these that the gods and the television gave us
Hold me love until we disappear againHere we are
Here we are
You hold it in your hands – true romance
I found a place to make a stand – true romance.”
With characteristic style, Gigamesh gives this track a good dance-fight kick in the teeth. He never fails to disappoint with his smooth mastery of electro-disco grooves. His style with this one is simple and effective. By that, I mean, you’ll want to spin and make your body move until all your cares float away. That’s like 95% of the reason I listen to music. That could be an exaggeration, but for today, it makes all the sense in the world.
