Cigarettes After Sex | Apocalypse

It feels like I’ve been listening to Cigarettes After Sex for ages so it’s almost a shock that their debut LP is still yet to drop and we have to wait until June 9th before the self-titled release hits from Partisan Records.

Other than being an enormous fan of the band name, and the act of having a cheeky ciggy after a session, “Cigarettes After Sex” really have created one of the best sounds of the contemporary era. Whilst the saturation of music online has made grabbing attention an act of attempting to hit you sonically in the first 30 seconds, Greg Gonzalez (frontman and all around sexy man) has constructed a cinematic melancholic swoon that grabs you from reality like a Neil Gaiman narrative towards a melancholic visual soundscape that you can lose yourself into.

If you ever feel the need to just shut up shop and sit with a beer and contemplate the decision you’ve made that lead you to such a mess, then this album may be more than enough to quell your self-loathing craving. Look forward to the album in June and European tour dates in the lead up.
