Sound Citizens announces new single 'Rising Star'

Sound Citizens are pleased to announce their new single, 'Rising Star', will be available Friday 27th January 2017. Both the single and music video were self-produced by the band, and mark the first in a series of releases planned for 2017.

Sound Citizens' music is quickly being recognised as a new Caribbean sound, and rightfully so. 'Rising Star' seamlessly blends a Caribbean jump-up soca vibe with their own brand of bad-ass island funk. From the hard-hitting intro to the percussive drop and hands-up finale, the song is consistently a hit at live shows.

A collection of musicians from all over the world, Sound Citizens formed in Antigua in 2015 and have been making waves around the islands ever since. Fresh from their Leeward Island tour (playing packed out shows in St Maarten, St Barth's and BVI), the band is more in demand than ever.

Riding on the success of their second full length album 'Swunk' (https://soundcloud.com/soundcitizens/sets/swunk-album), 'Rising Star' makes clear what the new Caribbean sound really means. And it's very exciting.

'Rising Star' is a captivating listen from the start. With their Antiguan / Brazilian rhythm section, the band will not rest until you are moving. The Stevie Wonder-twinged keyboard riffs and catchy saxophone melodies make for a truly powerful single. With Josh Winfield's commanding vocals on top, this is a track with attitude and groove, and it leaves you wanting more.
