Sharing their first new music since their 2017 debut album ‘Swear I’m Good At This’, Diet Cig - that’s Alex Luciano and Noah Bowman, if you need a refresh - have released new song ‘Night Terrors’. We can all let out the collective “Finally!” sigh now…
Speaking on the new song, Alex says, “This song centers around my very real and frequent experiences with night terrors and other bizarre sleep activity. If we’re close enough to have ever shared a room, you know what I’m talking about. This song goes out to you.
The idea of night terrors also represents the fact that no matter how hard I try to curate a specific and perfect version of myself, the embarrassing, weird, unlikable parts are always going to be there too. The people I’m closest with will always end up seeing them, when they inevitably come hurling out of me like my night terrors in the middle of the night. This song’s about holding onto that hope that the real ones will like me even with all my weird freaky stuff underneath. Even when I’m screaming at them in my sleep from across the hotel room.”
