Citizen frontman Mat Kerekes just released a self-titled solo EP through Synergy Records. It has a sparse, folky, emotive sound that’s quite a departure from his work with Citizen. The songs “Forgiveness” and “Reach” are infused with subtle string arrangements that make this short piece of work sound even sweeter. If you like lyrically driven, bare bones acoustic music, with earnest, unpolished vocals, you’ll definitely appreciate this EP.
