Diet Cig have again teamed up with director Emily Dubin, this time making a video for “Maid In The Mist,” a track off their debut album Swear I’m Good At This (Frenchkiss Records) which was released earlier this year. DIY calls the video “amazing” and Dubin tells them, “My goal with the ‘Maid of the Mist ‘video was to take the stereotype of the ’emotional girl’ and lean into it as hard as possible. Often times, women who exhibit any sort of emotional reaction to anything are labelled over-sensitive and are told to essentially ‘get over it.’ We’re rarely given control, and when we do exercise control, we’re labelled as domineering or a bitch.

The idea that a group of witches set up this whole ritual and do this extravagant spell just so they can make sure to kiss the boy they want during spin the bottle is meant to be a melodramatic reflection of the way men perceive women: always extra, always emotional, always plotting.

However, I think our fondness for and practice of emotional intelligence in a general sense is one of the strongest assets that women can have; what better way to embody power, sensitivity, emotion, and connection to the universe than a bad ass group of witches?”

Following their headlining show at New York City’s Bowery Ballroom, Diet Cig are currently bringing their infectious show to Europe. They return state-side later this Fall for a string of dates that kick off November 10 in Durham, NH and conclude December 15 in Sayreville, NJ.

Diet Cig is Alex Luciano (guitar and vocals) and Noah Bowman (drums).
