DARWIN DEEZ SHARES NEW SONG “LAST CIGARETTE”
“so damn catchy, a sprightly summer pop song” (Noisey)
“puppy dog charm and wicked chops combine on scintillating set” (Uncut)
“ a back to form slab of syncopated new wave” (NME)
Darwin Deez is set to release his excellent third album next month and today he shares the record’s infectious opening track, “Last Cigarette.” The first song off of Double Down – an album which Darwin Deez recorded, performed, mixed and mastered all by himself in his 6-floor Williamsburg walk-up – is an irresistible and charming indie-pop tune about reluctant self-indulgence.
“’Last Cigarette’ is a song about procrastination at its core. Everybody knows smoking is bad for you but they do it anyway. There’s something very human about that, and you also see it happen in co-dependent relationships all the time,” Darwin Deez explains “This song applies to my relationship with girls, not to my actual relationship to smoking. It’s the people we know are bad choices that are the hardest to resist.”
Darwin Deez is performing a sold-out show in Brooklyn, New York tonight at Baby’s All Right, ahead of a European tour through October and November where support will now come from the wonderful Peluché.
Featuring “Time Machine,” Zane Lowe’s recent “World Record” on Beats 1, and lead single “Kill Your Attitude,” an Annie Mac “Hottest Record In The World” on Radio 1, Double Down will be released on September 18th via Lucky Number.
