Citizens! - 'Reptile'

A perfect pop chorus

With the sprightliest track here by some way, Citizens! seem to have stumbled across the key to writing perfect pop choruses (basically: kick in no later than the 60-second mark, repeat at least six times and, er, make it catchy as fuck). So, ‘Reptile’ is playful, boisterous, a tad demented and features what could possibly be a toddler playing the main riff on a Fisher Price keyboard (FYI, this is a good thing).
