Formed in 2008, Cigarettes After Sex have played host to a number of different musical collaborators, working through a variety of sounds since their inception. In the spring of 2012, inspired by the Trinity Session, Cocteau Twins, Red House Painters, Mazzy Star & the sound of early ’60s records like “I Love You How You Love Me” by the Paris Sisters, they recorded their first proper EP, I., live over the course of a single night in the stairway of a four story building. Gonzalez called the experience “basically an accident; kind of an experiment”.
After dropping the chart-toppers like “Affection” and “K” following in 2015 and 2016, respectively, the band decided to release their first studio effort with self-titled Cigarettes After Sex in 2017. The album introduces the hits like “Apocalypse”, “Each Time You Fall in Love” and “Sweet”.
Recently, the band just dropped a new single “Crush” (Listen below). Of course, the song is promised to be played for their 2018 Asia Tour.
