Local Nice To Meet You #53

Citrus Blossom


To Nice To Meet You είναι μία στήλη, στην οποία συστήνουμε νέες μπάντες και νέους μουσικούς που ακόμα δεν έχουν κυκλοφορήσει full LP, παρά μόνο singles ή/και EPs.


Local Nice To Meet You #53 και ανεβαίνουμε Θεσσαλονίκη για να γνωρίσουμε τους Citrus Blossom.

Πρόκειται για ένα heavy blues rock τρίο, απαρτιζόμενο από τους Βασίλη Παπαδόπουλο (κιθάρα, φωνή), Κώστα Μπαξεβάνη (μπάσο) και Θανάση Ποσονίδη (τύμπανα). Δημιουργήθηκαν το 2017 και μόλις χτες (6/4) μας έδωσαν το πρώτο τους single, "Stranger". Εκρηκτική κι εθιστική σύνθεση, η μπάντα παίζει δεμένα και αψεγάδιαστα, ενώ οι φωνή του Παπαδόπουλου δείχνει εξαρχής πως δεν... αστειεύεται. Σπάνια και επιβλητική, ορθώνει ακαριαία το ανάστημά της πάνω από τα δαιμονισμένα όργανα και σέρνει έναν old school rock 'n' roll χορό, που θυμίζει Led Zeppelin. E, και αφού θυμίζει Zeppelin, αλυσιδωτά αν το πάρεις, θυμίζει και Jack White... Να το πω με δυο λόγια; Η φωνή είναι ανείπωτα καλή και το κομμάτι έχει τη στόφα του classic.

Παραπάνω από ελπιδοφόρο δείγμα λοιπόν το άρτι αφιχθέν "Stranger", περισσότεροι Citrus Blossom την ερχόμενη Παρασκευή 10 Απριλίου, οπότε και θα κυκλοφορήσουν το παρθενικό τους 5-track EP "Eyes Filled With Apathy" (check and pre-order here / stay tuned track by track by the band on the way).

Ως την Παρασκευή, εγώ ακούω στο repeat το "Stranger"... Σας συστήνω να το κάνετε κι εσείς, δίνοντας βάση στην παρακάτω περιγραφή και στους παντοδύναμους κοφτερούς σαν μαχαίρια στίχους.
 

"Stranger refers to  the war crimes of Israel to the Palestinian people of Gaza during the “Protective Edge” military operation in 2014. The lyrics work as the monologue of a Palestinian father to an Israeli soldier before the soldier kills him."


Lyrics

Do what you want stranger
This is my home take it
There is nothing left for me.

Seventy years you break me
My kids played with guns
That killed me
There is nothing to believe

Do what you want stranger
This is my land take it
There are no kids to play here.

Can’t see these arms, can you?
Scars of protest, scare you
You have nothing to believe

What are you waiting pull the trigger
I want to smell my wife’s curly hair
Do you really think I’m scared?
Want to make you rich and proud again

Do what you want stranger
This is my life take it
It ended long before we met

Seventy years you break me
My kids played with guns
that killed me
There is nothing to believe

What are you waiting pull the trigger
I Want to smell my wife’s curly hair

Do you really think I’m scared?
Want to make you rich and proud again

Do what you want stranger
This is my life take it
It ended long before we met

Seventy years you break me
My kids played with guns
That killed me
There is nothing to believe

 


 

About Citrus Blossom (από τη σελίδα της μπάντας στο facebook)

Feeding off the endless need to share inspiration, ideas and tunes, Citrus Blossom have been a cog in the neverending machine that rock n roll is, since 2017. From the very beginning, the goal was to showcase original compositions onstage and right after the band’s line-up was stable at the spring of 2018, the wheels were set in motion. Cruising through a guitar-driven bluesy rock and keeping the raw essence a trio always pulls off, they have managed to assemble a number of songs tailor-made to be played in front of a crowd. The variety of influences has always contributed to a creative mixture of sounds, as would account for a setting of heavy drums alongside with a scent of traditional Greek music in the vocal / guitar delivery and melodic bass lines infused in a funky jazz atmosphere. Through evolving improvisation and a pallet of sociopolitical lyrics addressing the world’s inequalities, the 5 tracks on the “Eyes Filled With Apathy” EP demonstrate Citrus Blossom as a young and hungry band, ready to take on the world, spread their message to as many minds and hearts possible with an uncompromised and soulful, melodic edge.
