It's been a busy few weeks in the Cigars camp, and there were some serious fireworks at our Mystery Highway single launch at Oxford Arts Factory last Friday night. The room was packed, we were pumped, and the vibe before, during and after the show was absolutely awesome.
Our best buddy photographer Meredith Schofield was there to capture some more amazing images, which you can check out here.
On top of that, the track has been receiving rave reviews so far, which we couldn't be happier about.
We particularly liked this line from the Emerging Indie Bands blog, which reads: "This is music to enjoy along with a bottle of whisky, a cheroot and a game of poker."
We couldn't agree more, and Toby was happy you labelled his percussion as "muscle-flexing", too!!
The AU Review handed us Single Of The Day honours last week, too. "This is a riff-heavy track that from the first note will make you stop and think, 'Well, that was definitely something'. Give it a listen," they wrote.
Rock And Roll Creations gave us some love, too, calling Mystery Highway a "fuzzy monster of a track as the vocals groove over this delicious sound".
They continued: "With touches of that old school rock, this single is set to ensure the band explodes on to a wider music scene."
Cas also had a chat on Sydney's 2RRR radio on Saturday night, too, which was good enough to give the track another spin for its audience.
We couldn't be more grateful for all the great feedback we're getting, and too everyone that made the launch last Friday such a special night for us all.
We're off to Melbourne next week for a couple of shows — see the Shows page for details — and can't wait to get there to give our fans down there a taste of it all.
