First Listen: Diet Cig – Dinner Date

a2197274905_10I had the lamest date to the
Daddy Daughter dance
Maybe that’s why i don’t like
To fucking slow dance

Teenage rebellion is a beautiful thing in the hands of New Paltz, New York’s Diet Cig. The duo of Alex Luciano and Noah Bowman hits a raw nerve on “Dinner Date,” the second single from the band’s forthcoming double A-side “Sleep Talk”/”Dinner Date” 7″.

With Thanksgiving ruined, a family pet slain and a trip to the ER included in the 2:37 of “Dinner Date,” singer Luciano stops short of demanding the car keys and $20. Debuting earlier this year with the five-song EP Over Easy, Diet Cig will kick off September with a full US tour. See dates below.
