Track Spotlight: cumgirl8 – ‘dumb bitch’

New York-based punk four-piece cumgirl8 have shared the newest track, “dumb bitch,” of their singles series, Pinks and Purples. Check out the track, streaming right here at New Noise.

The Brooklyn quartet embraced the punk attitude of The Slits mixed with the essence of early electroclash, blending the two together for a danceable anthem reveling in nonconformity and rebellion. In regard their latest track, and in their general mission, cumgirl8 reference the trolls and squares who have made a fuss about their band name as they expanded beyond the internet, and they’ve had enough of entertaining those narrow-minded values.

Bassist Lida Fox says that gender and sexual politics are the overarching points with the song, “but it also gets into how these dynamics play out in a society ruled by capitalism,” Fox adds, “how the roles we’re expected to play can become toxic and hypocritical to how we truly feel, and so often, we find ourselves stuck in patterns that hurt ourselves and those we love. It’s exploring the space between romance, masochism, pleasure, narcissism, and the balance of how much we give and take in our relationships.”
