New York City’s very own Diet Cig, busy away on into their biggest European tour yet, have released the occult-friendly new video for ‘Maid Of The Mist’.
The band, currently touring alongside Scottish indie band The Spook School, also recently added a second London date at The Moth Club after the first sold out.
On the new video, director Emily Dubin said: “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.
“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?”
Too fucking right.
