Enter the drifting sonic reverie of Art School Girlfriend, a beautifully downbeat experiment in pop electronica from the Margate-based artist Polly Mackey. It’s a head spinning swirl of inventiveness and subtle noise, a sound that gently jars your eyes shut, turns the mind inward and invokes a dreamy solitude. Latest tune Moon is a pure blast of simple and relentless beats underscoring the powerfully languid vocals of Mackey, like thoughtful fingers carefully massaging your psyche.
