Cigarettes After Sex have announced a one-off, global livestream, Live From L.A., filmed in Los Angeles, CA. The performance will be premiered worldwide on 26 MAY 2022.
The music of Cigarettes After Sex invokes not only the powerful feelings of euphoria inherent in the band’s name itself, but somehow manages to recreate emotions found only in the most romantic of movies; immersive, achingly nostalgic, thoroughly transporting, and intensely visual. It’s these powerful and unique qualities which have enabled the love songs of Cigarettes After Sex to reverberate across countless countries, and excite the most devoted kind of following.
The band's catalog has sold over 2.5 million records to date (streaming equivalent), amassing 1.8 billion Spotify streams, over 8.5 million monthly listeners, and 585 million+ YouTube streams. The band’s list of on-the-record fans include everyone from Taylor Swift, Kylie Jenner, David Lynch, Lana Del Rey, Françoise Hardy, Lily Allen, Busy Philipps, and more. They’ve been featured in Vice Noisey, V Magazine, Interview, NPR’s Tiny Desk, and their music has appeared in The Handmaid’s Tale, Killing Eve, and Ralph Lauren ads.
Speaking on the livestream, The Furniture wrote:
"This live stream is a great setting for us as it combines the spontaneity of a live show with the familiarity of a studio where we've spent hundreds of hours over the years. In fact, it's so appealing to us that we plan to record our next record in front of these cameras in order to document the spontaneous composition."
The Furniture's debut LP, out now via Spanish Prayers, is the result of an exploration of gradually shape-shifting constructions. The pair point to 1970’s German experimental music such as Cluster, and the pioneering minimalist composer Moondog as touchstones.
