On their 2017 self-titled debut album, indie rock trio Cigarettes After Sex honed in on melancholy love songs that evoked imagery of gently rustled sheets, darkened cafe bars, and cigarette smoke drifting from fire escapes on lonely winter nights. Now with Cry, the New York band, fronted by singer/songwriter and guitarist Greg Gonzalez, their intimate approach is still supported by hushed, midtempo grooves, but their point of view has gone a bit more global.

The band recorded Cry during a weeklong respite on the Spanish island of Mallorca, with Gonzalez having gathered scraps of lush melodies, poetic lyrics, and cinematic concepts partially inspired by his travels to Germany, Latvia, and at home in Brooklyn. As a cohesive whole, the album's nine songs address the radical vulnerability of falling in and out of love, exploring everything from nature to sexuality with heartfelt nuance. – Paper Mag

Cigarettes After Sex – if you prefer melody and softness to rhythm and abrasion – are one of the most sonically pleasurable groups of recent years. These are sturdily constructed songs, which would work in other arrangements, and they are presented in such a way that the instrumentation ornaments rather than overwhelms them. – The Guardian
