hmv's Next Big Thing... #120 Diet Cig
Every Wednesday we recommend a brand new artist who we think you're going to love. This week we bring you lo-fi New Yorkers Diet Cig...
Who Are They?
Diet Cig consist of singer/guitarist Alex Luciano and drummer Noah Bowman. They hail from New York's uber cool New Paltz district and have been together since 2014 when the pair met at a house party. They've just released their much-anticipated debut album Swear I'm Good At This on the wonderful Frenchkiss Records and they're about to head out on the road.
Who Do They Sound Like?
Their shonky, but dynamite guitar lines echo vintage Sleater-Kinney and Sonic Youth when they fancy being short and sweet, while the vocals are very Best Coast, it's pretty wonderful stuff.
Why Should I Be Excited?
Their tracks might be short on production, but they're big on passion, power and melody.
Can I Hear Something?
You sure can. Their new single 'Dinner Date' is below for you and their debut album Swear I'm Good At This is available to preview and purchase on the right-hand side of the page.
