Art School Girlfriend, AKA Polly Mackey, is bringing dreamy, intricate soundscapes to The Cluny 2 on Friday 5th April as part of her UK-wide tour. The producer, multi-instrumentalist and songwriter, who is based in Margate, released her second EP Into The Blue Hour last September and has already racked up hundreds of thousands of listens on Spotify.

A deep exploration into expanding her producer toolkit, Into The Blue Hour boasts loaded instrumentals that explode into arrays of powerful, colourful notes at any opportunity. Euphoric beats and soothing club vibes are a recurring factor throughout the EP, creating an expansive aura that’s difficult not to get lost in. Mackey’s honeyed vocals glide confidently across each track as lyrics reflect the musician’s current freedom to be as creative as she likes now that she’s escaped the Big Smoke.

If emotive music that you can fully immerse yourself in is your bag, Art School Girlfriend is definitely going to be your cup of tea.
