New Paltz, NY, duo Diet Cig have been making quite the stir since they dropped the first two singles from their debut selt-titled EP: ‘Scene Sick‘, and ‘Harvard‘. They’ve been named a ‘Band to Watch‘ by Stereogum, are loved on Hype Machine, and amassed nearly 70,000 listens on Soundcloud. Colour me obsessed. Their video for ‘Scene Sick’ does nothing to quell my obsession. It consists of one minute and forty nine seconds of goofy dancing, cereal eating, and good times. Check it out!
Diet Cig is out February 24th digitally and on tape cassette via Father/Daughter Records.
