Art School Girlfriend

Art School Girlfriend - Moon

Earning sonic comparisons to the ethereal style of acts such as Beach House and Massive Attack, Art School Girlfriend (aka producer and multi-instrumentalist Polly) delivers "wonderfully gothic doses of twilight pop" (Clash). Hailing from North Wales, she was raised on new wave and shoegaze, and after dabbling in a number of bands, she relocated to London where she lived for five years fronting a shoegaze act before settling in Margate, Kent. Opting for the new moniker Art School Girlfriend, her self-produced tracks - which explore themes of queer identity, lust and disillusionment - caught the attention of Grammy Award-winning producer Paul Epworth and she signed with his label, Wolf Tone Records (The Horrors, Glass Animals) in 2017. Her debut EP Measures followed later that year, with the darker, more electronic Into The Blue Hour EP released late 2018.
