Today’s song is “Human Elevator (Citizens! Remix)” by The Cast of Cheers. This single is off the band’s latest album Family which was released on July 23rd. This perhaps may be their most addictive track to date. As drums pound and looped riffs unspool, lead singer Conor brings a thrilling air of combustible menace to proceedings as he sneers, “we go down/ I spit you out” in the verses before exploding into a volatile chorus, making it one of the finest slices of angular dance rock you’re likely to hear all year. To top it off, Citizens! have done a great remix of the track.
After playing Belsonic and Reading and Leeds Festivals in August, The Cast of Cheers have been confirmed to join the NME Generation Next Tour in October in the UK alongside Howler and Gross Magic (see full dates below).
