Sway to soothing numbers 

Cigarettes After Sex are one of the most romantically-fueled bands in the world. Thanks to their soothing numbers like Apocalypse, Each Time You Fall In Love and Cry, they have earned a top-tier spot in our music playlists. Led by vocalist Greg Gonzalez, their music is romantic, calming and highly addictive. Their sleepy aesthetic only adds to the charm, and each number they play promises chills along with the feeling. 

Formed in El Paso, Texas, back in ’08, they topped the charts with their debut EP called I. in 2012. Soon the band made headlines with the release of their eponymous debut album.
