Horsegirl are cooler than anyone on the planet at this moment in time and their slew of singles, thus far released, place this statement in bold and highlighted. We’ve already salivated over the louch fuzz of ‘World of Pots and Pans’ and ‘Anti-glory’. Now, in anticipation of their debut album ‘Versions of Modern Performance’ (out …

We are delighted to premiere the mesmerising new video for the track ‘Point The Guard’ from Melbourne-based artist Local the Neighbour (the work of Taiwanese/Australian artist David Quested). There’s a delightful ambulatory flow to the track which eases along inside the brain like sliding down a slippery slide, emitting golden rays of joy. With a …

She has graced us with two stunning EPs and a series of brilliant singles that have illustrated her perfect amalgam of feisty yet achingly beautiful tracks that seamlessly drift between pure pop, indie rock and rap (sometimes all within one song), …
