Cigarettes After Sex

Saturday 1 June

Smoldering desire is worth gold, newspaper De Morgen once headlined about Cigarettes After Sex. In our opinion, this is a perfect description for the Texas-based band spearheaded by Greg Gonzales. The recipe is quite simple: pour your heartbreak in the mold of sparse dream pop and bring it to life with a hushed mercurial show. Everything in minor makes everything beautiful, that’s the maxim. The sheer heartache of Cigarettes After Sex doesn’t leave anybody untouched: even across the interwebs, as the streams and views are now running in the millions. A must for anyone who’s a sucker for suspenseful whispered melodrama.
