Horsegirl - Ballroom Dance Scene / Sea Life Sandwich Boy
NOTE: THE HORSEGIRL 7" SOLD ON ON PRE-ORDERS, HOWEVER IT HAS NOW BEEN REPRESSED AND WE'LL HAVE MORE COPIES VERY SOON!
Horsegirl are a noisy rock trio from Chicago composed of Penelope Lowenstein, Nora Cheng and Gigi Reece, all 17-18 years old. Inspired by the shoegaze and post-punk sounds of the ’90s US and UK indie underground, in their year together they have played contemporary art museums, all ages venues, open mics and house parties. The ‘Ballroom Dance Scene’ b/w ‘Sea Life Sandwich Boy’ 7” is their first physical release.
Written during a Chicago teacher’s strike in 2019, ‘Ballroom Dance Scene’ presents Horsegirl's glassy guitars and vocal counterpoint; the competing vocal melodies cascade over one another, detailing the lives of various fictional characters, bring to mind the excellent French band Rose Mercie, and post-punk legends The Raincoats.
The B-side, 'Sea Life Sandwich Boy'(the title inspired by a misread product name sold at their local grocery store), meanwhile revealing their love of 'nineties dream-rock, like Yo La Tengo playing Pavement songs.
This is a great debut 7", that you won't want to miss!
