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 started as an art collective in 2019 before coming together to create a boundary less sound, drawing from the likes of ESG, Cocteau Twins, Suicide, CSS, B-52s, The Shangri-Las, Chris & Cosey, Madonna, and many more.

Last year, cumgirl8 shared their debut 4AD EP phantasea pharm. Recorded, mixed, and mastered entirely from analog tape, the resulting 6-track EP is composed of brilliant and boundless music that stretch across the likes of Cocteau Twins, ESG, Suicide, The Slits, B-52s, Madonna and more. This release followed cumgirl8’s previous releases, including 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. Historically, the band has 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, and festival spots at Primavera, The Great Escape, London Calling, Greenman, Core Festival, 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 favor 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.
