    Indie rockers Diet Cig have returned with the new song “Night Terrors.”

    The New York duo of guitarist/vocalist Alex Luciano and drummer Noah Bowman have kept a low profile since releasing their breakout debut, 2017’s Swear I’m Good at This. Their new song is grounded in real-life experiences of “night terrors and other bizarre sleep activity,” as Luciano said in a press statement.

    She added, “The idea of night terrors also represents the fact that no matter how hard I try to curate a specific and perfect version of myself, the embarrassing, weird, unlikable parts are always going to be there too. The people I’m closest with will always end up seeing them, when they inevitably come hurling out of me like my night terrors in the middle of the night. This song’s about holding onto that hope that the real ones will like me even with all my weird freaky stuff underneath. Even when I’m screaming at them in my sleep from across the hotel room.”

    It’s still unclear if “Night Terrors” foreshadows a new Diet Cig record. While you wait for more info, stream the song here:
