After garnering attention from the likes of Pitchfork, Rolling Stone, Stereogum, and Spin, we're extremely excited to have Diet Cig in the family. We co-released a 7" single of Sleep Talk / Dinner Date with Father/Daughter Records. Now having released their debut album "Swear I'm Good at this" on Frenchkiss in 2017.
While recalling the sound of speedy twee-pop groups like Tiger Trap and All Girl Summer Fun Band, the record explores "the innocence of adolescence and infatuation." "Sleep Talk" begins where smash hit EP Over Easy left off, with the candidly self-analytical statement, "I can't play instruments very well and I'll eat all of your cereal." While this line may feel lighthearted, the narrative quickly grows complicated with the gentle admission, "If I told you I loved you I don't know who it would scare away faster." "Dinner Date" continues the theme of painful retrospection and vulnerability as Luciano examines familial disappointment. Both songs offer a more complex level of intimacy and prove that Diet Cig are here to stay.
FUN FACT: Diet Cig stayed over in Bristol on the first night of a UK tour and on our way to get some food Alex tripped on the cobbled street and split her face open. It was a super painful tour and we still feel bad for all the tequila that led to the fateful incident.
