It’s not going to change their perception, but at least you can tell them it’s a band, not a cult. 👀

  • Cigarettes After Sex is an American dream pop band formed in El Paso, Texas, USA by Greg Gonzalez.
  • They started in 2008 and became a real band in 2012. They would record live at their stairway in their hometown back then.
  • They came out as an ambient pop band but their music mainly focuses on genres like indie rock, shoegaze and slowcore.
  • The founder, Greg Gonzalez is the lead vocalist. People love his sultry and androgynous voice.
  • They describe their music as hazy romantic ballads, sort of like erotic lullabies (no, not the kind you play to your toddlers).
  • The inspiration behind the name of the band came to Greg when he was in a relationship in 2008 and the girl literally smoked after they were together. She taught him that and he loved the feeling.
  • Currently, the band has three members which are Greg Gonzalez (vocalist, acoustic & electric guitar), Jacob Tomsky (drums) and Randall Miller (bass).
  • They’re usually seen only in black and white outfits, just like how their posters and images on Instagram are.

Mostly, all of their songs sound the same with Gonzalez’s hushed and mysterious voice. According to him, the fact that their songs are so hushed has something almost secret about it that draws people in.
