The Citizens are an up-and-coming indie pop rock band hailing from Bondi, Sydney. They've played some exciting shows - winning Bondi's Battle of the Bands and competing in YouthRock finals - and recently released some new tracks, the aptly titled 'The Table's Not The Place' and 'Fishing In The Drought'.

Their funky new track 'The Table's Not The Place' has punchy, rhythmic - almost popcorn-like - guitar work influenced by Two Door Cinema Club and stylistic features and lyrics reminiscent of the ever-clever Isaac Brock. It's a cool, sassy track that's neat, clean and altogether pretty fun.

We caught up with the cool kids from The Citizens recently!

Who are The Citizens?

The Citizens are Lewis Clark (vocals, guitar), Sachin Burns (Lead Guitar), Joey Reinhard (Bass) and Ben Munro (Drums). We are an indie pop band from Bondi, and we were formed in 2011. 

What do you guys do at band practice?

We write our songs with strong structures and we rehearse them endlessly, for a really great live show. 

How did you guys start playing together?

We started playing together when we entered a band workshop where we were placed together and wrote good songs, so we wanted to stay together as a band. 

Best thing you've done as a band?

Our best experiences would have to be supporting The Cairos at the Metro Theatre, for All Ages Concerts Sydney's Christmas Party.
