cumgirl8 Announces Debut Album phantasea pharm
New York City quartet cumgirl8 announce their debut 4AD EP phantasea pharm, will drop on August 18th, via 4AD. Ahead of the release, the band have shared album highlight “gothgirl1.” 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.” follows Last month’s single “cicciolina” was a perfect introduction, a tribute to the Hungarian-Italian pornstar turned politician Ilona Staller, aka Cicciolina. The new single “gothgirl1” opens another chapter. Written with Nick Launay (Kate Bush, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, The Slits) during the band’s stay at Barbizon.
