CMAT has a boogie in her new video for ‘No More Virgos’

It's set in a Texan-themed nightclub in 1980s Ireland.

CMAT has dropped a video for her latest single, ‘No More Virgos’.

It’s a cut from her just-announced debut album ‘If My Wife New I’d Be Dead’, set for release via AWAL Recordings on 25th February 2022.

Speaking about the track, CMAT explains; “I’m the kind of girl who dates the same person over and over again. Specifically, every single one of my partners have been Virgos. I wanted to write a song that pokes fun at this aspect of my personality, and try to be a voice for all of my long-suffering friends. Musically, I really wanted to try and marry my love of 80’s Italo disco with my hatred of Virgos. I just can’t help myself from making terrible decisions sometimes! Sorry!”

Of the video, she adds: “I wrote ‘No More Virgos’ about what happens in 10 minutes in a nightclub and when I talked with director Eilis Doherty we decided to try and make the video just like that – except set in a Texan-themed nightclub in 1980s Ireland, of course! Big thanks out to all of the amazing extras and the angels – Viola, Lavender and Maura Darragh – who danced the day away in the name of taking a stand against Virgos. Lov u all xx”
