Brooklyn’s Cigarettes After Sex – comprised of Greg Gonzalez, Phillip Tubbs, Randy Miller and Jake Tomsky – are a force to be reckoned with. After hearing TDL favorite, Garbage, raving about them and then asking them to open for them on tour this fall, we had to see what all the fuss was about. One listen to “Nothing’s Gonna Hurt You” and current favorite, “Affection,” had us hooked immediately, and justifiably so!
Gonzalez’s androgynous voice captured our attention while remnants of Cocteau Twins, Joy Division, Garbage and The xx ebb and flow gloriously throughout their tiny yet magnificent catalog. Their debut full-length is due out early 2017.
