Electric Citizen (Cincinnati)
Electric Citizen’s self-described “Witchy ’70s Metal” caught on with Psych Rock fans and touring bands pretty quickly. Driven by the sludgy, acidic guitar work of Ross Dolan (The Head and the Heart, Two Headed Dog) and uniquely melodic vocals of frontwoman Laura Dolan (co-founder of the Cincy Psych Fest), the band hit the road quickly after forming, eventually getting offers from other like-minded touring acts to join them for dates. On the recording side, Electric Citizen caught the attention of L.A. record label The Crossing, which released a double 7-inch vinyl EP featuring four tracks recorded with Brian Olive at his Diamonds complex. The EP is also being released on cassette through Breathe Plastic Records out of the Netherlands.
