Sweeping sheets of sonic blue swallow the chaser – painting a picture of devotion that’s guarded within Cigarettes After Sex’s world of ‘her’, but where Greg Gonzalez has previously found himself celebrating the euphoria of romance, ‘Each Time You Fall in Love’ sees the front-man leaving thumb-printed glass behind as he wanders down a palm-flanked strip of self-reflection – magnifying the sleepless void within that another can’t seem to fill.

Gonzalez has previously revelled in premonitions of love and nostalgic myths – built from daydreams and the remnants of former lovers, but here he croons with a grounding uncertainty against a soundtrack of soft synth and steady, slow-burn rhythm. Taken from the band’s self-titled album, the blissful lament gifts a skin-crawling tension that finds both a remedy and a poison in fast, shallow love. “How come you never give in?” questions Gonzalez, and within such a question forever is held.

‘Each Time You Fall in Love’ is taken from the band’s self-titled debut album releasead June 9th 2017 via Partisan Records.
