“melancholic, androgynous pop noir set in smoke-filled darkness.” – Rolling Stone
“Cigarettes After Sex’s sound is elemental, hazy, and romantic, but with a noir edge underneath Gonzalez’s androgynous voice. As the band’s name suggests, it’s reminiscent of lying in bed, but its ambient qualities don’t prevent it from being music you can dance to.” – Noisey
Cigarettes After Sex is an ambient pop group based out of Brooklyn, NY led by songwriter Greg Gonzalez. Formed in 2008, the group consists of keyboardist Phillip Tubbs, bassist Randy Miller and drummer Jacob Tomsky. In the spring of 2012 Cigarettes After Sex recorded their first EP over the course of a single night in the stairway of a four story building. Since then they have become a viral phenomenon, generating tens of millions of views on YouTube for their exquisitely yearning, graceful pop noir. The band’s self-released debut single “Nothing’s Gonna Hurt You Baby” has clocked over 31 million views whilst the more recently shared “Affection” has received over 14 million. They recently signed to Partisan Records and are currently at work on a debut album, due for release in 2017. To mark the occasion, and just ahead of a run of UK/EU shows, the band has now released a new track entitled “K.” which you can hear below.
The word-of-mouth success of Cigarettes After Sex extends beyond their huge online and Spotify stats.
