More about Cigarettes After Sex

Cigarettes After Sex was formed in El Paso, Texas in 2008. The band’s frontman Gonzalez is known for his androgynous voice. While the band touts themselves as an ambient-pop band, their music can also be considered shoegaze, slowcore and indie rock.

Earlier in 2020, Cigarettes After Sex had released a single titled You’re All I Want. Speaking about the track, the band said in a statement:

“Recorded in the summer of 2017 during the sessions for our second album, Cry. The initial takes of the song were finished in the courtyard of the house we were staying at in Mallorca, late in the evening, right as a thunderstorm was rushing in over us.”

In 2008, Gonzalez recorded their first EP, I., at the University of Texas as an experiment. In 2015, the band recorded their single Affection along with a cover of REO Speedwagon's Keep On Loving You. YouTube music recommendations played a huge role in escalating the popularity of the band on the platform.

The band released their debut studio album on June 9, 2017. In August 2019, the band announced their second studio album, titled Cry, along with the single Heavenly, and it was then released on October 25, 2019.
