New York four-piece, cumgirl8, has released their latest effort “cicciolina” and inked a record deal with 4AD ahead of their support dates alongside Le Tigre this summer.

Inspired by the Hungarian-Italian former porn star turned politician Cicciolina Ilona Staller, the band shares, “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”

“cicciolina” is a rough around the edges, grunge meets pop medley that pays homage to the empowering feminity that Cicciolina Ilona Staller embodies and a reflection on sexual freedom. Check out the full track and accompanying video directed by Emmie America.
