The 8-track stereo blares the “Immigrant Song.” The sun has burned off the last whispers of morning haze. A gleaming, cherry red '67 GTO roars past the cornfields and silos on a forgotten highway. The summer wind rushes through your hair, and you suddenly realize what it is to be free.
Scenes like these play over and again in one’s mind when listening to “You’re what you wish you are…,” the debut CD from Harlem, NY rock band Citizens Of Contrary Knowledge. The music is purely modern and original while evoking the passion, spirit, and volatility of the music of the Seventies. Modern Rock in a love affair with the greatest music ever made.
This band of 4 journeyman musicians has found indie success with their first release, having licensed music to Showtime's hit series "The Tudors" starring Jonathan Rhys-Meyers, Nickelodeon's "Drake and Josh" and "Zoey 101", MTV’s Logo network, and College Sports Television. Their music has made a splash on college radio from Maine to Virginia, Michigan to Long Island, and the politically charged song “Wrong Side Of The World” is featured in the independent film “PBI: Paranormal Bureau of Investigation" from Alpha and Omega Films.
Citizens’ much anticipated second release is due out in the coming year.
