Cumgirl8 Announce New EP 'phantasea pharm', Stream "gothgirl1"

New York punk/post punk band Cumgirl8 have announced the release of their new EP ‘phantasea pharm‘, and have shared their new single “gothgirl1“.

phantasea pharm will be available on 18 August through 4AD and follows last year’s single ‘dumb bitch’ and EP’s cumgirl8 (2020) and RIPcumgirl8 (2021). Pre-order your copy here.

Made up of Lida Fox (bass), Veronika Vilim (guitar), Chase Lombardo (drums) and Avishag Rodrigues (guitar), phantasea pharm was born out of an obsession with Ella Fitzgerald’s “Old McDonald” ahead of a show in Charlottesville, Virginia. The band decided to pay homage. Vilim dressed up in a cow leotard with pig accessories, Lombardo in a g-string and apron that read “The Grillfather,” Rodrigues became a lawn mower, and Fox took on the role of a sexy rooster. “We went on stage that night and told everyone we were a ‘Fantasy Farm.’” They knew then that would become the basis of their new EP.

gothgirl1 was written with Nick Launay (Kate Bush, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, The Slits), during the band’s stay at Barbizon, “a magical artist hotel nestled on the edge of a mushroom forest,” the result is a four-minute cut of hypnotizing eroticism that perfectly captures the dark mysticism of its genesis.

Take a listen below.
