Rising duo PEEL have shared their dreamy new single 'Citizen X'.
The band's debut EP is incoming on Innovative Leisure, but word already seems to be out on the pairing.
Sean Cimino and Isom Innis combine on new single 'Citizen X', and its otherworldly charms have won it a place on the FIFA 2021 soundtrack.
The song itself began as a kind of shoegaze piece, with PEEL teasing out fresh elements while indulging their Cocteau Twins fetish.
PEEL’s Isom Innis comments…
"'Citizen X' was an outlier to our usual stream of conscious lyric writing process – the framework began more conceptually. It has a tongue in cheek tone and is coming from a disillusioned place."
"Originally, it was a slower shoegaze inspired track, but Sean had the idea to re-imagine it, speed it up and really emphasize the groove and treat the guitar more like Robin Guthrie [Cocteau Twins].”
Subtle but striking, 'Citizen X' is testament to the pair's absorbing creativity.
