Reliably informed

Summer and its hazy, hayfever free meadows are evoked in this latest single from Citizens of YEAH! It’s a tale of winsome longing, wishing and attraction. Rather than the febrile, hot-blooded thrills of first love, it skirts the edges, almost looking on from a distance. What results is almost definitely an unintended flirtation with voyeurism. That said, musically, the gentle mood and laid-back tone of the song offsets any potential for stalker-ness!

The Citizens in question are in fact a sole occupant, and the musical dynamic and pacing of the song isn’t as cohesive as one might find from a practised band. But besides this, the evocative mood and tender sound rides its own wave just enough to have some of the charm its title claims.
