Cumgirl8 announce a brand new EP entitled phantasea pharm

06 June 2023, 14:11 | Written by Tyler Damara Kelly

The EP announcement coincides with new single "gothgirl1".

Last month’s single "cicciolina" was a tribute to the Hungarian-Italian pornstar turned politician Ilona Staller, AKA Cicciolina.

The new single "gothgirl1’"opens another chapter to the EP, and was written with Nick Launay (Kate Bush, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, The Slits) during the band’s stay at Barbizon – “a magical artist hotel nestled on the edge of a mushroom forest".

Made up of Lida Fox (bass), Veronika Vilim (guitar), Chase Lombardo (drums) and Avishag Rodrigues (guitar), their forthcoming EP, 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 it would become the basis of their new EP.

phantasea pharm follows last year’s standalone single "dumb bitch"’ and EP’s cumgirl8 (2020) and RIPcumgirl8 (2021), and arrives in the midst of their headlining EU/UK tour and festival run.
