Video Premiere: Cubic Zirconia, “Hoes Come Out at Night” & Night Slugs Test Pressing Giveaway

Not that we’re still mad about wasting six years of our lives on Lost or anything (cough), but Cubic Zirconia‘s Tiombe Lockhart being birthed fully formed from an adult female would have been a way better denouement. Build on the mystery, people! Anyway, thanks to the birth, on a bass rap track called “Hoes Come Out at Night,” Lockhart flips the script on the derisive term, connoting “ho” as fully alive female power as opposed to, like, hooker. This is the latest in CZ’s filmic flirtation with broadstroke mysticism and controversial tropes to deepen and underscore the futurism of their music, which in turn is couched in the raw force of Lockhart’s potent womanness. Whether channeling Josephine Baker or evoking Toni Morrison, she’s emerging as an awesome subversive force, and we’re psyched to see where this goes next. And just so you can further explore the meaning behind it all, we’re giving away a copy of the test pressing of this single—the group’s debut on venerable London label Night Slugs, featuring remixes by Ikonika, House of Blow and Burt Fox (check the tracklisting and preorder info after the jump). To enter, big up your favorite Cubic Zirconia song in the comments, and leave your proper email so we can contact you if you’ve won.
