The songs with be available digitally -- "Sleep Talk" on 7/10/15 and "Dinner Date" on 8/21/15 -- and will be released on vinyl 9/18/15. Like the Over Easy EP, it was recorded with Christopher Daly at Salvation Recording Company in New Paltz, NY and mastered by Jamal Ruhe at West West Side Music.
Beginning as a casual project between Alex Luciano (guitar) and Noah Bowman (drums), New Paltz, New York's Diet Cig have made a big statement out of five highly infectious pop songs. The pair met under rather unusual circumstances: Luciano, desperate for a lighter, interrupted the set of Bowman's other band, Earl Boykins. No lighter was to be found, but a friendship was sparked and Diet Cig was born. While recalling the sound of speedy twee-pop groups like Tiger Trap and All Girl Summer Fun Band, the duo's debut Over Easy EP explores "the innocence of adolescence and infatuation." With Bowman's crashing drum kit offering stationary support, Luciano becomes an onstage tornado as lines between band and audience blur into a massive dance party. Diet Cig return with their new seven-inch, 'Sleep Talk / Dinner Date. Both songs offer a more complex level of intimacy and prove that Diet Cig are here to stay.
