Ones To Watch 2020: Among The Citizens

Ones To Watch

User Avg

Since they were discovered in late 2018, the award-winning Among The Citizens are on the ICM Ones To Watch list for 2020.

The Cambridgeshire-based indie pop quartet burst out onto the scene with debut single ‘Mess in the Head’, have matured into one of the most exciting young bands entering the indie/alternative genre within the UK.

They scooped up an NMG Award in 2018 for Breakthrough Act and Best Indie in 2019 so the accolades alone go a long way. The debut EP was released in the Autumn of 2018 featuring ‘Antisocial’, ‘Pretend To Be In Love’ and ‘Fling’, combining classical rumpus indie riffs and floaty-rhythmics and melodic undertones have proved to be a recipe for impending success.

The latest single ‘In Your Car’ (produced by Jon Hucks (Spring King/False Heads) is the band’s most anthemic and purest single to date. We can’t wait to hear more from the up and comers.

Let us know what you think of the band by leaving an ICM Rating out of 10!
