Cigarettes After Sex's music manages to evoke emotions that can only be found in the most romantic of films; haunting, achingly nostalgic, thoroughly stirring and intensely visual.
It is these powerful and unique qualities that have enabled the love songs of Cigarettes After Sex to resonate in countless countries and inspire a loyal fan base. A mix of dreamy guitars, swelling synths and the intimate, yearning vocals of Greg Gonzalez.
The band has sold 2.5 million records, 3 billion Spotify streams, over 20 million monthly listeners and more than 800 million YouTube streams. The band's fans include Taylor Swift, Kylie Jenner, David Lynch, Lana Del Rey, Françoise Hardy, Lily Allen, Busy Philipps and many more. In 2023, they sold more than 200,000 tickets worldwide without having released a new album since Cry (album, 2019).
But now Cigarettes After Sex are back with new music. In X's (album, release 12.07.2024), Greg Gonzalez deals with a long-term relationship and its end. He says the new album feels "brutal". The style moves away from the influences of the 50s and 60s, subtly towards slow dance tracks of the 70s/80s. In 2024, Cigarettes After Sex will perform in some of the biggest and most iconic concert halls in the world.
