Diet Cig, which may or may not require a government warning, is actually New Paltz, New York-based duo Alex and Noah. They’re a young band cranking out satisfyingly concise and pointed slop-pop tunes with a thousand volts of fun. The two are caught in a whirlwind of touring, but found some time to stop by the brand new Serious Business Music in DUMBO to talk about their experience and to help break in the new live room.
Featured song: “Harvard” // Listen to the audio podcast with more music and interview.
Diet Cig’s new 7” (featuring “Sleep Talk” and “Dinner Date”) is available now from Father/Daughter Records.
