Diet Cig are here to have fun. They're here to tear you away from the soul-sucking sanctity of your dumpster-fire life and replace it with pop-blessed punk jams about navigating the impending doom of adulthood when all you want is to have ice-cream on your birthday. Alex Luciano (guitar and vocals) and Noah Bowman (drums) have been playing music together ever since Luciano interrupted the set of Bowman's other band for a lighter. The New Paltz, New York duo have since released the infectious, 2015 ''Over Easy'' EP that introduced consistent sing-a-long lyrics with thrashing drums and strums that never held back. ''Swear I'm Good At This'' is the first full-length from the band and accumulates their tenacity for crafting life-affirming, relatable tales with a gutsy heart at their core. Luciano has the ability to write lyrics that are both vulnerable and badass, perfecting a storm of emotive reflection that creates a vision of a sweaty, pumped-up room screaming these lines in unison. Diet Cig make it okay to be the hot mess that you are. But there's also a deeper, more powerful f***-you among the bangers that see Diet Cig grow into an unstoppable and inspiring force. ''I'm not being dramatic, I've just f***ing had it with the things that you say you think that I should be'' spits Luciano on ''Link in Bio''; ''I am bigger than the outside shell of my body and if you touch it without asking then you'll be sorry,'' she yells on ''Maid Of The Mist.'' It's the sound of a band doing things on their own terms. Wrapping up ''Swear I'm Good At This'' on Halloween 2016, exactly two years after they finished recording ''Over Easy'' on Halloween 2014, Diet Cig's first full-length LP proves you can still be a punk when you're wearing a skirt. ''Swear I'm Good At This'' is out April 7, 2017 on Frenchkiss Records.
