Colorado-based grit-rock group CITRA is comprised of singer/guitarist Brandon Arndt, lead guitarist Augie Menos, bassist Sean Slattery and drummer Mauricio Jara.
Hailing from various pockets of the country, the band found their collective home in Denver in 2015, where they have since made their electrifying mark. Since their formation, CITRA has taken hold of Denver with their vivacious energy, commanding songwriting, and unrelenting musicianship. Their five-track sophomore EP Mr. Copacetic (2018) serves as the band’s pinnacle to date, as it stays true to the the band’s formative strengths, while providing the whip-fast energy fans know and love. The EP gained widespread acclaim, including 303 Magazine’s “Best Rock Artist” and “Fan-Favorite New Album.” CITRA’s tenacity, and insatiable desire for stylistic variation make them a band impossible to nail down, and have made them “the premier rock group in the Denver music scene”(Ultra 5280).
