Today on the blog I'm talking all about my latest musical obsession: Diet Cig.
Diet Cig are a two piece pop-punk band from New York. The band consists of Alex Luciano on guitar/vocals and Noah Bowman on drums. They have two albums out, an EP called Over Easy, and a full length titled Swear I'm Good at This. I've been listening to them for about 2 months now and I'm hooked!
I stumbled upon Diet Cig after seeing a tweet from Exclaim! magazine sharing the music video for their song Harvard. There was something about how fun and upbeat the music that was something you could both dance around to in your bedroom, but also find yourself moshing to at a show. What's also kind of intriguing about their music is that Alex has a very soft, sort of indie-pop voice, but in a split second could jump to a raw sing-yelling, which kicks up the attitude in the music.
If you're looking for a fun dance-punk band to listen to, I'd highly recommend Diet Cig. The more I listen to their music, the more I find myself finding new parts I like, which is one of my favourite qualities when listening to music.
I've left the video for their song Harvard below, and their socials as well. Be sure to check them out because I have a great feeling about this band and that they're only going to go up from here. In the meantime, I'm gonna patiently wait until they announce a Toronto show.
