Cumgirl8 Share New Single ‘Quite Like Love’

Stand-alone single ‘quite like love‘ by Manhattan four-piece cumgirl8 arrives via 4AD / Remote Control.

Lauded by Paper Mag as “that rare act that melds the sweat of performance with the immediacy of a headphones-on experience,” cumgirl8 further proves their infectious nature with this new track, a throbbing, late night overture to twisted romance. With an unsettling, industrial air, here, the band touch close to Cabaret Voltaire in the style of “gothic pop and scuzzy dance-punk studded with horny prose” [Pitchfork].

Earlier this year, cumgirl8 shared another stand-alone track entitled ‘glasshour.’ Praised by the likes ofPAPER Magazine, The FADER, Post-Punk, and Brooklyn Vegan, its release showcased all that’s exciting and unique about cumgirl8 via jarring electro-punk flourishes, industrial sludge, and an irrepressible hook tying it all together.

Both new stand-alone singles serve as a preview for the group’s upcoming debut record (due later this year), a follow-up to last year’s EP release, phantasea pharm.

About cumgirl8

cumgirl8 met in a sex chat 8000 years ago in another metaverse. Made up of Lida Fox (bass), Veronika Vilim (guitar), Chase Lombardo (drums) and Avishag Rodrigues (guitar), the band render the immersive and chaotic energy from cyberspace into our world, coming together to make a boundary-less sound that brilliantly stretches across the likes of ESG, Cocteau Twins, Suicide, CSS, B-52s, The Shangri-Las, Chris & Cosey, Madonna, and many more. Last year, cumgirl8shared their debut 4AD EP phantasea pharm, recorded, mixed, and mastered entirely from analog tape. The six-track EP followed stand-alone single ‘dumb bitch’ (2022) and their two other EPs, cumgirl8 (2020) and RIPcumgirl8 (2021).

As much as the music itself, cumgirl8’s incendiary live performances are brilliantly chaotic and emblematic of the spirit of New York performance art. Last year, the band played a sold-out show at New York’s newest venue Knitting Factory at Baker Falls (formerly The Pyramid Club), a stint supporting Le Tigre on a sold-out Canadian run, a headline EU/UK tour, and a festival run that included spots at Primavera, The Great Escape, Greenman, Core Festival, Loose Ends, and Pitchfork Paris just to name a few.

Self-styled with clothes they often make themselves – from farm animals to giant babies – their onstage aesthetics have also found favour in the fashion world, resulting in various features and cover stories from the likes of Lampoon and Purple Magazine. Also a clothing line, cumgirl8 designed and released two fashion collections and runway shows under CG8.
