Diet Cig are back with a band directed video mixing children’s theater and a wildly addictive song.

Diet Cig share “We had such a fun time getting to wiggle around on a stage again!! We built the whole set ourselves in a park down the street from our apartment, we loved getting to play with the goofy DIY aesthetic of children’s theater paired with the silly seriousness of an improvised, costumed dance.

“Who Are You?” is from Diet Cig’s sophomore album Do You Wonder About Me? Alex Luciano and Noah Bowman continue to have youthful energy and whipsmart lyrics that have every music lover salivating at every note.

Diet Cig, the hyper-duo of Alex Luciano & Noah Bowman are back with a new single after a hiatus after their LP Swear I’m Good at This. Luciano how the track came about

“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.”

Diet Cig will be touring in Europe and US beginning in May. For info visit http://dietcig.com/
