News: Cigar Cigarette Releases New Single and Video ‘Probes’ Off Forthcoming EP

Avant-garde electronic music artist, Cigar Cigarette, the solo project of Los Angeles artist and producer Chris McLaughlin, released a new single called “Probes” which features guest vocals from Angel Deradoorian of Dirty Projectors. The new single is off the upcoming Cigar Cigarette EP Natural History, which is due out June 7 from Trash Casual Records. “I wrote the lyrics to Probes after waking up from a nightmare,” explains McLaughlin regarding the new single, “but I suppose it sounds like a love song. Angel Deradoorian (Deradoorian, Dirty Projectors, Decisive Pink), sang where the song crescendos one afternoon in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. I had been living with the music for a while, but nothing was working lyrically until I realized it needed to be two songs at the same time.”

The video for the new single, directed by Jacqueline Kulla, is as avant-garde as the song, creating an art-house film style that perfectly compliments the complex and groundbreaking song. Check out the video below.
