History

Cigarettes After Sex was formed in El Paso, Texas, in 2008. Gonzalez recorded the first EP, I., in a four-story stairway at his alma mater, University of Texas at El Paso, calling the experience "basically an accident; kind of an experiment". "Nothing's Gonna Hurt You Baby", "I'm a Firefighter", "Dreaming of You", and "Starry Eyes" were recorded for I.

Gonzalez relocated to Brooklyn, New York, where the band's single "Affection" was recorded and released in 2015 along with a cover of REO Speedwagon's "Keep On Loving You".

Through music recommendations, Cigarettes After Sex has gained millions of views on YouTube, leading to live performances across Europe, Asia, and the US. Cigarettes After Sex released their self-titled debut studio album on June 9, 2017.

Musical style and influences

In a feature for Noisey by Vice, Christina Cacouris describes Cigarettes After Sex as "elemental, hazy and romantic, but with a noir edge underneath Gonzalez's androgynous voice" as well as "sweet and sentimental". "As the band’s name suggests, it’s reminiscent of lying in bed, but its ambient qualities don’t prevent it from being music you can dance to." Gonzalez cites Françoise Hardy as his favorite singer and Miles Davis as having great impact. The band also includes The Cowboy Junkies' album The Trinity SessionJulee Cruise, and Cocteau Twins as influences. The music blog Eardrums Music describes the band as "slow, dreamy and beautiful with gorgeous, tender vocals and very good lyrics." and compares it to Mazzy Star Music bloggers behind Swell Tone describe Cigarettes After Sex as a band producing "melancholy, slow pop that will sweetly rock any listener into a listless stupor."

Lyrics

Watching the video that you sent me
The one where you're showering with wet hair dripping
You know that I'm obsessed with your body
But it's the way you smile that does it for me

It's so sweet, knowing that you love me
Though we don't need to say it to each other, sweet
Knowing that I love you
And running my fingers through your hair
It's so sweet

Watching the video where you're lying
In your red lingerie ten times nightly
You know I think your skin's the perfect color
But it's always your eyes that pull me under

It's so sweet, knowing that you love me
Though we don't need to say it to each other, sweet
Knowing that I love you
And running my fingers through your hair
It's so sweet

And I will gladly break it
I will gladly break my heart for you
And I will gladly break it
I will gladly break my heart for you
And I will gladly break it
I will gladly break my heart for you
And I will gladly break it
I will gladly break my heart for you

It's so sweet, knowing that you love me
Though we don't need to say it to each other, sweet
Knowing that I love you
And running my fingers through your hair
It's so sweet

Testo

Guardando il video che mi hai mandato
Quello in cui stai facendo la doccia, con l'acqua che gocciola dai tuoi capelli
Sai che sono ossessionato dal tuo corpo
Ma è il modo in cui sorridi che fa davvero per me

E' così dolce, sapendo che mi ami
Anche se non abbiamo bisogno di dircelo l'un l'altro, dolce
Sapere che ti amo
E scorrere le dita nei tuoi capelli
E' così dolce

Guardando il video dove sei sdraiata
E indossi il tuo completino intimo rosso, ogni notte, per dieci volte
Sai che penso che la tua pelle sia di un colore perfetto
Ma è sempre il tuo sorriso a farmi perdere la testa

E' così dolce, sapendo che mi ami
Anche se non abbiamo bisogno di dircelo l'un l'altro, dolce
Sapere che ti amo
E scorrere le dita nei tuoi capelli
E' così dolce

E lascerei volentieri che si spezzasse
Spezzerei volentieri il mio cuore per te
E lascerei volentieri che si spezzasse
Spezzerei volentieri il mio cuore per te
E lascerei volentieri che si spezzasse
Spezzerei volentieri il mio cuore per te
E lascerei volentieri che si spezzasse
Spezzerei volentieri il mio cuore per te

E' così dolce, sapendo che mi ami
Anche se non abbiamo bisogno di dircelo l'un l'altro, dolce
Sapere che ti amo
E scorrere le dita nei tuoi capelli
E' così dolce
