They met in New York, although both are originally from Asia; they’re called Bubble Tea and Cigarettes and they write and record their songs in a small bedroom. It sounds like the beginning of the perfect love story. Andi andKat make vaporous, melancholic, exciting music, close to Mazzy Star, Galaxie 500, Beach House, Cocteau Twins or Cigarettes After Sex. The kind that leaves you hypnotized, sedated, absolutely hooked.
After releasing last year their debut album There’s Nothing But Pleasure they are back with a new song: French Movie.
Cigarettes After Sex continue to specialize in woozy, dreamy, softspoken pop. “Pistol,” the latest from Greg Gonzalez and friends, glides gracefully along in the way we’ve come to expect, pretty and fragile and dreamlike and sensual. Hear it below.
Italian-born film composer Daniele Luppi grew up listening to the groovy lounge sounds of Italian pop music in the late ’60s and early ’70s. Used in advertising, film, television and radio, this musical style became so much a part of Luppi’s life that he could not help but draw on its influence for his first full album, An Italian Story. Here, Luppi not only pays homage to the genre of his youth, but he takes it one very classy step further: he employed those musicians who originally brought the music to life to make his modern version of it shine. Born and raised in Rome, Luppi was classically trained on piano and also learned to play jazz organ, becoming a master of the Hammond B-3.
Daniele Luppi has worked with some artists, ranging from his 2011 Rome project – which included Danger Mouse and Jack White – to his 2017 recordings with Parquet Courts and Karen O.
His new EP finds the studio boffin pivoting once more, with Daniele Luppi combining with Cigarettes After Sex figure Greg Gonzalez. The incoming project is titled ‘Charm Of Pleasure’, and it merges two very distinct artists.
Rising singer-songwriter Donna Missal shares a smoldering cover of Cigarettes After Sex’s “Nothing’s Gonna Hurt You Baby” that appears on the soundtrack to the upcoming film, Promising Young Woman, directed and written by Emerald Fennell.
Back in October, the extremely popular Cigarettes After Sex released their sophomore album, Cry. It continued to refine the sound that first brought the band adoration — ambient, dreamy, obsessed with love and lust.
‘You’re All I Want’ is the band’s first new music since the release of second album ‘Cry’ last year.
