'Sleep Talk / Dinner Date' is a Father/Daughter (US) and Art Is Hard (EU) co-release. Like the Over Easy EP, it was recorded with Christopher Daly at Salvation Recording Company in New Paltz, NY and mastered by Jamal Ruhe at West West Side Music.

After beginning as a casual project between Alex Luciano (guitar) and Noah Bowman (drums), New Paltz, New York's Diet Cig have made a big statement out of five highly infectious pop songs. The pair met under rather unusual circumstances: Luciano, desperate for a lighter, interrupted the set of Bowman's other band, Earl Boykins. No lighter was to be found, but a friendship was sparked and Diet Cig was born. The duo's February 2015 debut EP, Over Easy, consists of lyrics written by Luciano in her bedroom. While recalling the sound of speedy twee-pop groups like Tiger Trap and All Girl Summer Fun Band, the record explores "the innocence of adolescence and infatuation." With Bowman's crashing drum kit offering stationary support, Luciano becomes an onstage tornado as lines between band and audience blur into a massive dance party.

Track Name: Sleep Talk
i can’t play instruments very well
and i’ll eat all of your cereal
but I’ll never be a smoker
cause the second cigarette
makes me feel like shit
what if i came to your apartment
had a chat with your girlfriend
i bet she’d make me coffee
before i told her about you and me
being home never felt so bad
why is everyone here so mad
only here under obligation
its hard to pretend this is a vacation

i like getting coffee by myself
but i still know how you like yours
and going home is scary but
at least I’m in your stupid car doors
we’re so good at being alone
but we’re always together

and if i told you i loved you
i don’t know who
it would scare away faster
Track Name: Dinner Date
i had the lamest date to the
daddy daughter dance
maybe that’s why i don’t like
to fucking slow dance
and my mom said don’t buy vegetables
they won't last
well she’s right cause
our friendship is in the past

and i go through these phases
of people and places
and the turkey is tasting
just like the shit that you’re talking

so you know i had to shoot that dog
because everyone's family
when you’re in a hospital
and you know I’m scared
like a third grader
on a triple dog dare

and i go through these phases
of people and places
and maybe if you took me out to dinner
i would like anything for
longer than a year
