Horsegirl - Versions of Modern Performance
Rough Trade Exclusive clear yellow vinyl + bonus CD.
After meeting through the significant network of Chicago's youth art sector, Nora Cheng (guitar, vocals), Penelope Lowenstein (guitar, vocals), and Gigi Reece (drums) formed Horsegirl, united by a love for distinctive noise rock, 80s and 90s independent music. Camaraderie and a DIY ethos lies at the root of everything this band does, from songwriting to album artwork design to creating their own zine. At the humble ages of just 17-19, this band continue to mature and flourish into a talented and creative unit, ready to cause a ruckus wherever they tread.
Inspired by the shoegaze and post-punk sounds of the 90s US and UK indie underground, with breathy vocals and deadpan storytelling the band's debut showcases impressive originality and an addictive edge for such a young group. After a string of successful singles, Billy, Ballroom Dance Scene and Sea Life Sandwich Boy, this band have become a real Rough Trade staff tip, played in heavy rotation in our stores and our offices.
