Imagine a place to listen to music while they serve you a drink of, say, a New York Sour cocktail. Definitely a favorite at the Porchlight New York bar.

This way you can pay tribute to Brooklyn’s Cigarettes After Sex and its track Truly, as you get lost in the streets of the city bethed by the sunset lights hiding behind the skyscrapers.

You probably know Cigarettes After Sex from Nothing’s Gonna Hurt You Baby, which has been associated with the film Lost In Translation – for some reason. However, we wanted to get a step back and show in depth what the Brooklyn trio has to offer.

Truly, is a song that illustrates very well the somber and minimalist side of both the group and the visual art of the latest recordings. From the 2017 production of the album of the same name, Truly is a linear track because of its drum rhythm, but it contrasts with the rest of the tracks on the album because of its beat, which is a bit more lively and cheerful. The chorus effect on the guitar and the contrasts of acoustic chords increase the dynamism.

A thought-provoking song…

2 ounces rye whiskey or bourbon

1 ounce lemon juice, freshly squeezed

3/4 ounce simple syrup

1/2 ounce red wine


Add the whiskey, lemon juice, simple syrup and egg white (optional) into a shaker with ice and shake hard until well-chilled.

Slowly pour the red wine over the back of a bar spoon so that the wine floats on top of the drink.


Don’t drink and drive. Enjoy responsibly.
