Stream Diet Cig’s Excellent Power Pop Album ‘Swear I’m Good At This’ Right This Very Instant

As pervasive as Diet Cig’s excellent and ragged pop-punk realness has been in my life, it’s weird to think that the group haven’t actually released a debut album yet. The EPs and 7″ singles were just that good that it’s easy to forget they’ve never dropped a full collection of songs. But that’s all about to change on April 7 with the release Swear I’m Good At This.

Guitar/vocalist Alex Luciano and drummer Noah Bowman keep up the hot streak they’ve been on since the release of their Over Easy EP at the beginning of 2015. Swear features more of their trademark sweet and vulnerable songs that could almost be nursery rhymes if Luciano wasn’t shredding all over them. And if you’re ready to dive in to some real feels over some crunchy guitars right this instant — and honestly that’s a fitting way to feel about songs this immediate — the album is streaming now via NPR’s First Listen.
