Check out ambient pop collective Cigarettes After Sex. With their immaculately written songs, velvet vocals and perfect production they are fast becoming the next thing.
The band was started by songwriter Greg Gonzalez in El Paso, Texas, during 2008 and has built their reputation through the millions of hits they’ve received through YouTube earning them worldwide recognition.
Multi-instrumentalist Gonzalez takes lead vocals and plays electric or acoustic guitars and occasionally bass. He is joined by drummer Jake Tomsky, Phillip Tubbs on electric guitars and keys plus bassist Randy Miller.
In 2012 they released their EP titled /. which was recorded in a single night up and down the stairway of a four story building. It drew upon influences such as Cocteau Twins, Mazzy Star, Trinity Session, Red House Painters and the feel of early sixties records - “I Love You How You Love Me” was of particular importance in the creation of the record.
They have now relocated to Brooklyn, New York, and released the single Affection which was accompanied by a cover of REO Speedwagon’s massive hit Keep On Loving You.
