TRACK REVIEW: Pretty Citizens – Lost Control

Pretty Citizens are a pretty solid jack of all trades kind of band, especially upon the first listening of their latest single Lost Control, set to release on April 22nd. Slick, shoegaze dipped and seductive as fuck, the up and coming Nottingham act furnish this track with a groove that wouldn’t go amiss on a Stevie Wonder record and tales of lust and love lost that culminates in a heavy feedback climax that brings the sexual tone of the song full circle.

There’s some pretty risque lyrics that are reminiscent of a young Alex Turner with ‘I saw your face in the ladder of her tights, they’re something beautiful to climb down at night’ being a standout one. “It’s probably our most immediate song. It doesn’t fuck about in getting the point across” is what lead guitarist Luke Watson had to say about Lost Control and credit where credit is due because the boy ain’t lying. Managing to craft a song that manifests a dark ambience around it this early in their career is a pretty good indication of what potential the boys hold in their psych-rock drenched hands.
