American dream pop band Cigarettes After Sex ‘Apocalypse‘ was featured on The 100 soundtrack this week — The 100, Season 6, Episode 10, “Matryoshka“.
The track was heard as we see Josephine showing a memory of herself and Gabriel to Clark.
Cigarettes After Sex ‘Apocalypse‘ was released in 2017 on the band’s self-titled debut studio album. It was the second single from the album, and was written by the band’s lead singer Greg Gonzalez.
Since it’s release, it has become one of the band’s most popular songs with over 11 million views on YouTube, and almost 57 million views on Spotify.
The song was written by Gonzalez as a “love letter” to several girls in his town. Girls who he dated, and who he felt wanted to travel and see the world but, instead, they were trapped in the small town they had always lived in.
“Got the music in you baby, tell me why
Got the music in you baby, tell me why
You’ve been locked in here forever and you just can’t say goodbye
You’ve been locked in here forever and you just can’t say goodbye”
