Look at the Fish - Citizen Icon
The boys from Georgia are edgy and doing something slightly non-mainstream that i'm sitting in my office intrigued. Their album, Look at the Fish begs your listening ear. On Lift it Up, you'll be surrounded with part euro-rock, part psychedelic-rock, part grunge, but two thumbs up!
Shotgun starts with a single voice and acoustic guitar. Singer and frontman, Chris Cummings growls his thoughts and angst. The band joins in a few bars later and drives the listener in a nice early Pearl Jam fashion. Later tracks like High Life use hard hitting beats and tight harmonies to carry the song. I believe this one is their strongest on the album. By the last chorus, you'll be singing along.
If you're in the Atlanta area, be sure to check out their tour schedule.
RATING: 4 of 5 stars
