Art School Girlfriend sketches her return on crisp new song 'Distance (Blank)'.
The project is an outlet for Polly Mackey, a musician whose path from London to Margate has opened up possibilities both creative and personal.
Growing up in Wrexham, North Wales, the psychic shift from city to country is clearly something that resonates, and this journey is something she approaches on a new EP.
Incoming on Wolf Tone, 'Into The Blue Hour' is Polly's second EP under the Art School Girlfriend moniker, and the question of space is central to its composition.
New song 'Distance (Blank)' deals with this, the sub-zero electronics moving from crowded intensity to something a little more relaxed, pinned together by Polly's vocal.
"Lately I am in over my head," she comments, a testimony to the grinding penetration of London life, and a plea for something more.
