Single review by firstname.lastname@example.org
I bet it was a pain in the backside to clean that lot off his head after the four different photo shoots. Now he knows what Kiss must go through most nights. Yet another talent from the Brooklyn scene, Alex Musto formed What Model Citizens in 2009 and has worked with an array of musicians when performing live in the past, but the studio work is pretty much just the man himself. A self-titled debut album was released in 2010 and another is planned for the autumn, this single being the first we get to hear of it, and it has to be said that things are looking promising if you like your music innovative, fun and energetic.
Describing their sound as "electropunk", What Model Citizens sound like Gary Numan being remixed by Fisherspooner at the height of electroclash. The sounds overlap quite a lot. It's an insistent little monster, not pausing for breath as the beats just keep on coming, ticking along like a pneumatic drill at some points. The energy continues over to b-side 'Acts Of Sound', another track that gets the world of retro electronica, modern electronica, punk and noise-rock and squishes them together into a song-shaped lump. It all feels a bit like a mad head-rush.
