cumgirl8 release new song ‘cicciolina’, sign to 4AD

New York quartet cumgirl8 - also known as cg8 - have shared a brand new track today (Tuesday 18th April) alongside the news they’ve now signed to label 4AD.
The band - made up of bassist Lida Fox, guitarists Veronika Vilim and Avishag Rodrigues, and drummer Chase Lombardo - have now offered up their newest single ‘cicciolina’, which comes inspired by the Hungarian-Italian porn star turned politician Ilona Staller, who it’s named after.
Speaking of the track - which comes accompanied by a video directed by Emmie America - the band have said: “Cicciolina is an Italian icon, porn star and former politician that was elected to parliament in the 90s. She advocated for human rights and the eradication of nuclear weapons. Cicciolina said “make sex not war” and used her divine power of femininity to troll the status quo while disrupting it from the inside. We feel her ideals are foundational to the cumgirl8 philosophy of subversive change, peace, and strength in vulnerability. We hope she loves our song, we love her very much. Cicciolina is cumgirl1”
Check out the video - which sees the band members become their own video-game version of the title character - below.





The band also have a host of live shows scheduled for the coming months, including a stint supporting Le Tigre, and an appearance at The Great Escape next month. They’ll also be headlining London’s Moth Club on 9th May alongside a handful of other UK shows tickets are on sale now.
