“Apocalypse” is the 2017 hit from American dream pop group Cigarettes and their debut self-titled album. It is a well-known track among fans, and is one of the group’s most popular tracks.
The song sees frontman Greg Gonzalez (who also produced and wrote the song) urge a new lover to rid her mind of her past relationships, and to let herself fall into this new relationship. Gonzalez spoke to coupdemain magazine in 2017 about the song’s meaning:
“You go into love, and you’re pretty much going to get hurt at some point, it’s just kind of the way it is. But if admitting that the person is worth it, that they’re worth the pain, they’re worth the trouble and it doesn’t matter because you just want them […] I really believe in that.”
There is no official music video for “Apocalypse”, however the audio on the group’s YouTube channel has amassed a total of 108.2 million views since its upload in March 2017.
“Apocalypse” is certified Gold in the US and Greece, as well as Silver in the UK.
