Band of the Week #004: Diet Cig


Our fourth band of the week installment is New York's Diet Cig, who this month released their debut album 'Swear I'm Good at This' and announced a string of EU/UK dates this coming September/October.



Diet Cig is Alex Luciano (guitar and vocals) and Noah Bowman (drums). The duo have been playing music together ever since Luciano interrupted the set of Bowman's other band for a lighter. The New Paltz, New York duo have since released the 2015 Over Easy EP that introduced us to their sing-a-long tracks mixing trashy drums along with lyrics about just wanting to dance.

'Swear I'm Good at This' reflects them as a band, it sounds like that they are just having the time of their lives doing what they do. From the opening track, Sixteen, which starts of vulnerable and then suddenly Luciano goes: Ready?

And then it's a face full of Diet Cig all the way through the album.

We wont lie that we have waited eagerly for this album for over a year now, having stumbled across this band in a sweaty Old Blue Last in East London last January. Simply you cannot listen or watch this band without having an infectious smile appear on your face.
