It seems like several websites are catching wind of and writing about the New Paltz, NY pop duo Diet Cig right now. Rightfully so, it took me one listen to decide I really loved their debut track, 'Scene Sick', and feel like I am in good company by featuring it here. One of my favorite websites for new music, Don't Need No Melody, distilled the song's appeal down to one sentence: "The whole thing is kind of like reading a diary out loud, but one where every sentence ends in exclamation points.". Perfect.
And it is perfect, mainly because it succeeds in getting stuck inside your head, and begs for an instant replay. Infectious sing along pop tunes do that, every stinking time. In less than 2 minutes it's over, and you'll find yourself playing it again, and again, enjoying it because it's just a great pop song. Or maybe you're trying to dissect it to figure out the band's secret. Forget that angle, stream 'Scene Sick' below because it just makes you want to dance. So dance, or bounce around, or tap your toes, or do whatever you do to enjoy pop perfection.
