The Deli LA Premieres: Spooky Cigarette "Days of Repetend"

Spooky Cigarette straddle a fine line between frayed no wave and arty new wave. But it's in that confusion that the San Diego band ultimately excels, where they push forth a pleasant melodic guise even when it sounds like it's all about to crumble at any minute. One of the tracks off of their upcoming EP As Loud as I Can, "Days in Repetend", focuses on soft, lo-fi synth lines that are nestled in layers upon layers of reverb alongside sharply punctuated bass lines. This is all lead by singer Frank Mindingall, a compelling performer that knows how to transmit an anxious energy into his work with distinctive confidence. It doesn't hurt that you can kind of dance to it, too!

As Loud as I Can is due out on May 20 via Bleeding Gold Records. - Juan Rodríguez
