Diet Cig "Harvard"
Published Jan 26, 2015Describing themselves as "two homies making tunes and eggs on the regz," Alex Luciano and Noah Bowman's lo-fi garage-pop offerings as Diet Cig are about to get their first EP release next month. Not lying about their enthusiasm for eggs, the duo have titled the record Over Easy, and it arrives February 24 via Father/Daughter Records — but you can give album cut "Harvard" a listen right now.
Leading lady Luciano's vocals start off sugary sweet, but slowly go apeshit on an ex-boyfriend in the new tune, eventually declaring: "Fuck your Ivy League sweater."
The vengeful break-up jam is backed by a simply strummed electric guitar and peppy drums, serving as the perfect vehicle for Luciano's post-love vitriol. Give it a spin below [via Impose].
