Two things, two musical things, two exciting musical things from two sets of people we’ve mentions quite a few times on these fractured pages in recent times, Gazelle Twin has just this second let loose a new video for that excellent Hobby Hotse track we featured a few weeks back, and as expected, the video is as good as we knew it would be, here it is…
The new Gazelle Twin album pastoral is out on September 21st, out on Anti-Ghost Moon Ray on 21 September 2018, we’re expecting it to be one of the albums of the year. The video, directed by long-time collaborator Chris Turner, “firmly puts the album’s themes – exhuming England’s rotten past and showing its ever-darkening present – into focus”.
Elizabeth Bernholz aka Gazelle Twin, explains, ‘Hobby Horse’ is yet another fun-but-deranged experiment in an ever-growing catalogue of collaborations with director Chris Turner. We have a mutual appreciation for the uncanny – especially the kind tinged with a bit of ultra-violence. It’s great working with someone who knows how to capitalise on every kind of “weird” there is, yet still managing to keep performance at the core.’
Gazelle Twin has announced a series of live performances, following the album’s live debut at Supersonic festival, that includes Rough Trade East on Thursday 27 September.
