"The airy melody of the love song is soft yet strong, stringing together the messages of pain and memories of past relationships. With each lyric, the soft-spoken music group brings you back to that first moment of falling in love and the aftermath that follows behind it." - Billboard
"Cigarettes After Sex's ambient single "K." feels almost like a slowed down and smeared '80s synth-pop cut." - NPR
"Melancholic, androgynous pop noir set in smoke-filled darkness" --Rolling Stone
"...elemental, hazy, and romantic, but with a noir edge underneath Gonzalez’s androgynous voice." --Vice Noisey
"Cigarettes After Sex are the calm we all need right now...a sonic swirl of dopamine and serotonin posing as a four-piece band." --Paste Magazine
"'K.' is a bleary, understated guitar reverie that (gently) impacts like a liquid mix of the Clientele and Red House Painters." --Stereogum
"Hypnotic Brooklyn based Cigarettes After Sex are moody as anything. Attend this show with your festival crush and the smooches will happen almost instantly." -NME
Today, Cigarettes After Sex share their new single "Each Time You Fall In Love". It's the third single off their forthcoming self titled LP. When talking about the track lead singer Greg Gonzalez says it's, "Mostly about how I was never able to find myself completely satisfied with any romance or love affair that I had been through. It was as if I was always on the lookout for something more & it had gotten me into plenty of trouble over time."
Prior to "Each Time You Fall In Love" the band released two other singles, "K." and "Apocalypse". The band will also be headed out on a U.S. tour this fall, dates are below. 'Cigarettes After Sex' will be out June 9th on Partisan Records. You can pre-order the LP here and receive exclusive items including a picture disc, signed lyric booklet, and more.
