Finally! Finally one of the fastest growing music phenomena right now will release their heavily anticipated first album, visiting Šiška just five days later! With their self-titled debut, scheduled for release on 9th June, Brooklyn-based band Cigarettes After Sex is opening the doors to their wonderfully dreamlike world of noir romance, first glimpsed via the spontaneous hit single ‘Nothing’s Gonna Hurt You Baby’.
There’s nothing more exciting than catching an artist live at that sweet spot between feverish hype and full-fledged stardom, and it’s that exact tension that is felt around Cigarettes After Sex right now. Riding on the wave launched by its successful EP debut, featuring online sensation ‘Nothing’s Gonna Hurt You Baby’ – more than 48 million plays on YouTube alone! –, the four-piece has already gained heaps of devoted followers. With their upcoming debut full-length Cigarettes After Sex, the group is ready to establish itself as one of the unforgettable musical experiences of our time.
The eagerly awaited album is heralded by the single ‘Apocalypse’, which, swaying under the influence of bands such as Mazzy Star and Red House Painters, carries forth and develops the musical expression of Cigarettes After Sex. The album as a whole faithfully reflects the world as experienced by frontman Greg Gonzalez, with his impressionist vignettes of infatuation coalescing into melodic ambiance around his melting vocals, flirting with both the music of Twin Peaks and the most heart-felt love scenes.
The record will be released on 9th June, just five days before Cigarettes After Sex plays in Ljubljana. Kino Šiška will thus be among the first to have the chance to enjoy the freshly released masterpiece together with the band – don’t miss out.
Organisation: Kino Šiška.
