‘Cry’ - the sophomore album from Cigarettes After Sex - was
released on Partisan Records (IDLES, Fontaines D.C., Laura
Marling) on 25 October 2019. This is the first time the deluxe
LP edition is being made available to retail.

 Clocking in at nine songs, ‘Cry’ is a compact collection but its
brevity belies its depth. While the band’s sound may be most
associated with the romantic pop music of the late 50s and
early 60s, Greg Gonzalez pushes into more unexpected sonic
territory on ‘Cry’, reaching back to his childhood in El Paso,
Texas, to draw subtle melodic influence from 90s Tejano stars
like Selena and mainstream pop country artists like Shania
Twain.

 Gonzalez pushes himself lyrically on the album too, tackling sex
with the graphic frankness of Henry Miller or Leonard Cohen as
he renders unabashed, sometimes explicitly erotic scenes with
a casual candour. Writing with a filmmaker’s eye, he captures
tiny moments with a rich, cinematic detail that manages to
locate the profound within the mundane.
