Diet Cig is Alex Luciano (guitar and vocals) and Noah Bowman (drums). The duo have been playing music together ever since Luciano interrupted the set of Bowman's other band for a lighter. New York duo have since released the infectious, 2015 Over Easy EP that introduced consistent sing-a-long lyrics with thrashing drums and strums that never held back. The New York Times labeled it "a lo-fi whirlwind, with songs cutting to the heart" and NPR said the EP is "cathartic pop-punk with boundless vitality and wide-eyed charm" while Pitchfork chimed in calling it "a collection of brisk, personal pop-punk."
Swear I’m Good At This accumulates Diet Cig’s tenacity for crafting life-affirming, relatable tales with a gutsy heart at their core. Luciano has the ability to write lyrics that are both vulnerable and badass, perfecting a storm of emotive reflection that creates a vision of a sweaty, pumped-up room screaming these lines in unison. Diet Cig make it okay to be the hot mess that you are.
