HORSEGIRL – ” Billy “

Posted: February 8, 2022 in MUSIC

We may be putting the cart before the Horsegirl, as the Chicago trio are only releasing their first single for Matador in March. They are also busy beyond music, with two members in the first year of college at NYU and the other finishing up senior year of high school, but we certainly hope there’s more where “Billy” is coming from and that we won’t have to wait till 2023 to hear it.

Having only formed in 2019, and with merely three singles released so far, Chicago trio Horsegirl have quickly captured the ears and attention of fans and critics world-wide, garnering early critical acclaim from notable institutions such as Pitchfork, NPR, Stereogum, Sirius XMU, NME and BBC Music. On new single “Billy”, Horsegirl push their singular brand of innovative guitar music a step further, expanding their already enveloping wall of sound with three-part harmonies, swelling, overdriven guitars and unexpected tempo changes. Produced by the band and legendary producer John Agnello (Dinosaur Jr., Sonic Youth, Kurt Vile), the electrifying new track not only marks a significant evolution for the young group, but further solidifies Horsegirl as the exciting new bastions of alternative music.
