Kitsuné Meets : Citizens! + Kitsuné Club Night December In Asia

Our cherished Citizens!, with their tradi-Brit spirit and hooky melodies, will soon perform with Gildas, in Taipei and Tokyo, on the occasion of the Kitsuné Club Night December In Asia Tour.

We interviewed Citizens! about their first album “Here We Are”, their worldwide tour, their future show with Gildas and their upcoming support of Two Door Cinema Club in Tokyo… in short, an hectic schedule !

“Here We Are” sounds like a statement about your musical ascent. What do you retain about these last years of touring around the world?
It’s been an exciting year. We wrote the songs in our little flats in London. To think back to that when a load of kids are singing your songs back to you in Melbourne or New York or Bangkok feels amazing.

Your best Festival or live memory ?
Calvi on the Rocks. We played at midnight with the moon shining out over the sea. It was a perfect night.

How goes your tour in Asia?
We had no idea we were so popular over here. This is the first time we’ve had fans waiting to see us at the airport. We have no idea how the girls know when our flights land but we respect their detective skills.

Are you excited about playing with Gildas in Taipei and Tokyo?
Yes. We’re going to request The Thong Song and see if he’ll play it out.

What are your feelings about supporting Two Door Cinema Club for their show in Tokyo ?
We can’t wait. Its always good to catch up with them. They are such a great live band we learn something every time we see them play.

Where in the world do you dream to play?
The Superbowl. Our egos will not be satisfied until we get that gig.

After a successful and acclaimed first album, a gigantic world tour, what is your next challenge ?
Album 2. We’re sat in our Bangkok hotel rooms working away right now.
