Nottingham rock band Pretty Citizens deliver an intense and epic sound on ‘Lost Control’. The song begins echoic and spacious. This soon digresses into a luscious guitar sound with a definitive and punchy rhythm that underpins the song in its entirety. The vocals enter, carrying with them an infectiously catchy melody.

After the second chorus we are presented with a Stone Roses-esque breakdown complete with squelchy guitar sounds and a moody bassline. This then blossoms into an intense wall of sound carried by the fragmented distortion of the guitar and the powerful drums. An immense track from a band with lots of potential.
