Diet Cig throw a proper party with their new video for ‘Tummy Ache’

Preparing for a gig is an all-day process, just in case you weren’t sure
‘Tummy Ache’ is an all-singing, all-dancing banger – and now it’s got an equally as emphatic video to boot.

Following a band of young female musicians as they head around town, the clip stars members of the Willie Mae Rock Camp For Girls and Girls Rock Philly – two non-profit music and mentoring organisations that aim to empower young women. Packed full of mentions and praise for the likes of Trans Lives Matter, Black Lives Matter, Planned Parenthood and support for immigrants too – it’s a defiant kick if we ever did see one.

Chatting about the track, Diet Cig said: “‘Tummy Ache’ is all about unpacking the feeling of approaching punk with radical softness, and the struggle when it’s not always read as powerful or cool or whatever enough. It’s the shout into my pillow when what I’m saying isn’t being heard, and a big old I FEEL YA to all the femme folks creating space for themselves in a world that wants to keep us quiet.”

‘Tummy Ache’ is the first track lifted from Diet Cig’s upcoming debut album ‘Swear I’m Good At This’ – set to land on April 7th.
