"Very few hearts resisted the rallying cry of Citizens! debut album hailed by British pop king Alex Kapranos (Franz Ferdinand). With its collection of hit slogan-like songs Here We Are (2012) established itself as an irresistible dance machine. For their second album, the band went on exile in their label Kitsuné's studio in Paris, the four Londoners have digested everything that America has in the way of soul music to give birth to European Soul, a slick pop album of modern romanticism. Are Citizens! Europhiles? "This title is more ideological than political", says singer Tom Burke. "It suggests the idea of sharing, of inclusion, and the will to be fearless in the face of change". Profoundly positive, European Soul is a record that leans towards the future, a collection of contagiously exalting tracks that break with the present context of economic, political and social angst weighing on the band and its generation despite them."
