We introduce you to The Citrus Scene and ask them a few question ahead of their forthcoming gigs.
Tell us about you?We are The Citrus Scene. We are Aidan Ryles (vocals and rhythm guitar), Finlay Bradshaw (lead guitar), Robbie Cooper (bass guitar) and Brodie Smith (drums)
What’s your music about ?
We’re a high-energy guitar-based indie rock band. Think Arctic Monkeys. Think the Courteeners. Think Stone Roses and Oasis. Mix with some of the freshest new songwriting from Inverness’s most exciting young band in recent times. With Over 17,000 plays on Soundcloud. A sell out support gig at the Ironworks. Supporting Toploader. An EP just about out. Think Citrus Scene.
What are your first three songs on your set-list?
If you were able to steal one song from any act and claim it for yourself, which one would it be?
Where can we catch you?
We’re four lads from the Culloden area, we’re all sixteen, all met at school and the band’s been going for just over a year now. We spent our first year practising, practising, practising– improving all the time and honing our unique sound until we were ready to go public. Our first major gig was at the Ironworks in January this year– it was a sell out and an unbelievable night. Sonically, we tore the walls down.
We’ve built up a growing hard core of loyal fans who have been absolutely brilliant. They give us their energy and in return we give them braw tunes for bangin’ nights. We’ve come so far so quickly and we’ve surprised a fair few folk along the way. But we’ve worked hard to get here and we know it’s just the beginning…
