Diet Cig

New York, NY

“Slop-pop” duo Diet Cig make tight, concise blasts of unvarnished indie rock brimming with the relatable feeling of growing pains. The hum of their hooks and immediacy of their riffs don’t quite conceal the awkward angst of vocalist-guitarist Alex Luciano, but that’s actually what makes their music remarkably re-listenable.
