“Thriving” Diet Cig

Northern Transmissions 'Song of the Day' is "Thriving" by Diet Cig
"Thriving" by Diet Cig

Diet Cig will release their new album Do You Wonder About Me? on May 1 via Frenchkiss Records. Along with the news, the duo has shared their new single. The duo says “the song is a cathartic, campy release of feelings. Its about the duality of absolutely Thriving without someone but also desperately wanting them to notice you doing so. Inspired by the melodrama of reality TV and musical theatre, we wanted the song to bounce back and forth between a lavish personal anthem and the anguish of feeling forever beholden to others opinions.” “Thriving” is the follow up to last month’s “Night Terrors.” The band have confirmed their first set of North American and UK dates in support of the new album and kicks off on May 14 in Philadelphia.
