cumgirl8 Sign to 4AD and Share ‘cicciolina’

Track: cumgirl8 – ‘cicciolina’

Label: 4AD

New York’s four-piece, aka cg8, share their newest track with a gamer girl meets pornstar inspired music video. In five minutes the screenplay encapsulates the raw and bold energy of its namesake, Hungarian-Italian pornstar turned politician Ilona Staller, aka Cicciolina.

What They 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.”
