On July 12th, Cigarettes After Sex will release their highly anticipated new album, X, via Partisan Records — swaying bodies and moving souls with lush instrumentation and introspective lyricism to have wash over you. Tejano Blue opens this release with a soothing and sensual number signature to the band's emotive songcraft.


Frontman Greg Gonzalez comments on the single:


“I grew up in El Paso & Tejano music is huge there. You could go to a lot of the bars in the city & hear artists like Selena, Los Ángeles Azules & La Mafia playing over the speakers. It was in the atmosphere around me back then, but I always rejected it & gravitated towards anything else I was attracted to really.


Years later when I was living in New York City I finally started listening to Selena’s ‘Como La Flor’ at the same time that I was also listening to a lot of Cocteau Twins. I had the idea then to try to combine both of their sounds somehow, which felt a bit strange, but also felt like it was coming from a genuine place of rediscovering & finally connecting with the music that I heard around me in my youth.”
