"Citris closes out the night – this time as a two-piece . Since seeing solo Citris performances a few times at the Knitting Factory & missing a show a long time ago at Gold Sounds, one can’t help but be impressed with the strength of Angelina Torreano’s vocals when...
“The youthful angst of unreciprocated love, skewed timing, and searching for opiates to ease the anxiety is all captured in Brooklyn-based punk band Citris’ new song, “Driving Me Crazy.””
