Diet Cig shares new song “Dinner Date” — listen

on August 19, 2015, 1:25pm

New Paltz duo Diet Cig took on pop punk and awkward confessions on last month’s excellent single “Sleep Talk”. The two-piece returns this week with more painfully honest musings on the chugging “Dinner Date”. Alex Luciano and Noah Bowman describe their music as “slop pop,” and, while human emotions do tend to get pretty messy on their songs, they’re just saying all the things we’ve felt, but never had the courage to articulate properly.

Listen in below.

Diet Cig’s “Sleep Talk” b/w “Dinner Date” 7-inch is due out on September 18th through Father/Daughter Records. For more of the band, check out their debut EP, Over Easy, which was released earlier this year. Also, catch ’em live at the following US tour dates.
