New Music: Art School Girlfriend - Distance (Blank) (Video)

Sometimes you just have to get away from things. To find some space.

“Lately I am in over my head. Lay me out to watch the sun instead,” sings Polly Mackey aka Art School Girlfriend, capturing that need. With its gentle electronic pulses and isolated electronics Distance (Blank) creates the sound of walls closing in, yet rather than it sounding crushing and oppressive it sounds full of soothing beauty. With hints of Massive Attack, Bat For Lashes and Portishead to her sound Art School Girlfriend is certainly in a very fine place musically. Her first EP was very good, and this is a further step up from that.

Art School Girlfriend is touring this October with dates in England and Scotland including a date in Breaking More Waves home city of Portsmouth at the multi-venue Dials Festival on October 6th. Tickets are available for £16 for a whole day of music by clicking here.
