Chicago rock group Horsegirl announces their first physical release, with the DIY video for ‘Ballroom Dance Scene’.
Coming out through Sonic Cathedral on April 2nd, ‘Ballroom Dance Scene’ is a re-release from Horsegirl’s “Ballroom Dance Scene et cetera (best of Horsegirl)” collection from 2020. Made up of highschoolers Penelope Lowenstein, Gigi Reece, and Nora Cheng, the trio’s combination of alt-rock, shoegaze and post-punk, alludes to groups such as Porridge Radio, The Amps or even Iceage. The artful build-up from Reece’s steady drum work anchors the whole track together, allowing Lowenstein and Cheng to perform a back and forth of marching, guitar hooks, fuzzed-up riffs and overlapping vocal murmurs. When pieced together, ‘Ballroom Dance Scene’ sounds completely timeless and more like the work of a band with twenty years of experience, instead of just two.
