Paper Citizen releases evocative new single "Hands Dirty"

Paper Citizen releases evocative new single "Hands Dirty"

The new single from Boston-based indie-rock project Paper Citizen is a sonic kaleidoscope worth revisiting. The instruments in "Hands Dirty" have a luminous quality to them: the guitars are bright, the bass pristine, the drums easy on the beat, and the reverb-dipped vocals of Claire Gohst beaming with confidence. Gohst, a Singapore-born artist now in Boston started her musical journey at a young age, playing classical music, then folk, and currently penning the evocative tunes of Paper Citizen. The music has an atmospheric vibe to it, an Explosions in the Sky type of instrumentation that elicits a dreamy and upbeat feeling that borders on hope. The music carries Gohst's influences and travels and is a tell-tale sign that in Boston, she feels right at home. - Rene Cobar
