We’re not sure if Montreal indie rockers CTZNSHP have something against vowels but whatever the case, it doesn’t change our opinion on their music. In case you’re wondering what our opinion is….well….these guys kick some serious ass.

It seems as though I’ve listened to their new EP over a hundred times in the past couple of months since being introduced to their sound – it’s not often I enjoy a band that much.

With that said, check out the Swan Dive EP in the embed below and be prepared for an all out musical assault on your ears – this is indie rock at it’s finest folks. We’re not sure what they’re putting in the water in Montreal but whatever it is, we want some.

CTZNSHP play Rancho Relaxo this Friday night as part of our CMW showcase with Two Way Monologues – don’t miss it!
