hmv's Next Big Thing... #125 Cigarettes After Sex

Every Wednesday we recommend a brand new artist who we think you're going to love. This week we bring you ethereal foursome Cigarettes After Sex...

 

Who Are They?

 

Their debut album might be just about to drop, but Texans Cigarettes After Sex are by no means a new proposition. In fact, they formed as long ago as 2008 as the brainchild of Greg Gonzalez, an electronica virtuoso. Over the years members of the band have come and gone while Gonzalez has put together a stream of excellent singles, but now they have a settled line-up and they're ready for the world. 

 

Who Do They Sound Like?

Think Dummy-era Portishead if they'd grown up on a steady diet of the Beach Boys and Death Cab For Cutie. 

 

Why Should I Be Excited?

Graceful melodies and wondrous soundscapes, their sound is totally hypnotic. 

 

Can I Hear Something?

Their self-titled debut album will be with us on June 9th and is available to pre-order here. You can hear their new single 'Each Time You Fall In Love' below:
