High-school friends Vaeda Black and Saverio tackle a bad habit with cigs. Written and recorded overnight during quarantine via Facetime it relays in a very honest way how you feel following a breakup. Bad habits form when you’re feeling sorry for yourself such as smoking too much. It’s a relatable song tinged with youth. Cigs is quite a departure from Vaeda Black’s previous dark release, Drunken Tears, proving how versatile she is.
“I can’t sleep with the thought of you with someone else,
I hate that you make me feel so damn sorry for myself”
Despite how fed up Vaeda and Saverio feel as they narrate their feelings with an honest delivery, there is a fun, uplifting feel to the track. Cigs is a kooky indie song with clean lines and vibrant acoustics. What brings it together is the chemistry between the artists – they bounce off each other lyrically and you can tell they had fun creating the song until the early hours.
