MODEL CITIZENS "Are Friends Electro?" (Dominance Electricity)
Model Citizens aka UK Electro duo Phil Klein (Bass Junkie) & Matthew Whitehead release their long awaited debut album “Are Friends Electro?” on Germany’s Dominance Electricity.
Formed in the void and born with a passion for all things Electro, from its roots in the 80s to the present day, Model Citizens inspiration spans decades and this is reflected in their musical output. With sinister vocoder vocals, driving basslines, soaring melodies and beats designed to energize the dance floor, “Are Friends Electro?” encompasses all the elements that Electro Freaks throughout the universe will enjoy.
The album also features West Coast Hip Hop/Electro legend The Egyptian Lover with a remix of his jam “Into The Future” taken from the album “1984“ and as a vocalist on “Sphinx-O-Matic”.
Extra-terrestrial comic artwork courtesy of Germany’s Markus Bülow compliments this release perfectly.
"Are Friends Electro?" is now available to pre-order in digital formats, on high quality glass-master-CD and double 12-inch vinyl (standard black and deluxe edition clear orange vinyl including a super-size poster).
