A bright lively start from opening track Thriving proves how much raucous noise can be created by a duo. New York outfit Diet Cig return with a confident second album. Alex Luciano delivers the lyrics of the songs with an emotional authenticity as Noah Bowman pounds the rhythms to accompany Luciano’s jagged guitar sound. By not over producing the sound the listener is left with raw energy.

It is of its time; Broken Body has become my anthem of the lockdown as it describes how “I cannot walk a block from your house, I’m missing all the things that make me feel alive” and “I’m cooked up inside”. Musically uncomplicated but rich in its storytelling qualities. This is a refreshing indie rock.
