Listen to Diet Cig's Radiant, Nuanced New Single "Link in Bio"

New Paltz, N.Y., duo Diet Cig make bouncy and bright “slop pop,” but just because something shimmers or sounds “pretty” doesn’t mean it’s not pissed off.

In the case of new single “Link in Bio,” singer Alex Luciano is throwing some majorly deserved shade at the entire notion of a “chill girl” that she asserts was “created by cis men to make women + femmes feel bad about voicing their feelings.”

That’s not at all what “Link in Bio” is. Luciano is totally unafraid to give her feelings a full-throated voice. There’s no back down—not a single inch is given. “I’m trying to take over the world,” she intimates over Noah Bauman’s obstinate drums and her own chiming guitar. That kind of conquering simply can’t be achieved by sitting in a corner and keeping quiet.

Diet Cig’s debut album Swear I’m Good At This drops April 7 via Frenchkiss. You can check out the band’s upcoming tour dates below, plus Diet Cig’s recent Paste performance, and find the details of their new album here.
