    I am playing too defensively as Black and ending up cramped for room. Apart from the Sicilian, what offers good attacking options for Black?

    I would suggest you improve on what you know rather than investigate another defence.

    Against 1. d4 try the Czech Benoni - it is a "system" rather than
    a defence ... which means (within reason) you can play the first
    8+ moves regardless of what White does.

    Good explanation here from Melbourne Chess Club
