LISTEN & SHARE: Cigarettes After Sex – “Apocalypse”

 

“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
“Tender like your lover’s hand wrapped around your ankle as he naps next to you on the couch; sad like that last fuck when you both know it’s over; smutty because the private language between two is a code that keeps outsiders in the dark.”
– Noisey 

“Cigarettes After Sex’s ambient single “K.” feels almost like a slowed down and smeared ’80s synth-pop cut.”
– NPR (Listeners’ Pick for Favorite New Artists of 2017) 

“Melancholic, androgynous pop noir set in smoke-filled darkness”
– Rolling Stone 

“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
