RIYL: Rhye, Blood Orange, Mazzy Star
Label: Partisan Records
Of all debut albums from the last few years, Cigarettes After Sex’s 2017 self-titled album was one of the most immediately satisfying for me. Soft, velvety dream pop for lovers and concubines, Greg Gonzalez sings simple vocal harmonies with profound warmth, a similar characteristic in artists like Rhye, Beach House and Mazzy Star. Their new sophomore release, titled Cry, was recorded entirely at night in a mansion on the Spanish island of Mallorca. Holy smokes, that sounds romantic AF.ย Get those silk sheets ready.
