Horsegirl broke out of the buzzing Chicago indie-rock scene this year with their own fresh sound. If you’re a fiend for guitars, Horsegirl deliver the clang you’ve been craving — their bang-up debut, “Versions of Modern Performance”, is a blast of top-notch six-string fuzz that brings a sly new twist to the grooves of Pavement, the Breeders, or the Pastels. These three Gen Z women might be too young to get into bars but they’ve got a wide-open future.

The band runs through some of the meatier cuts from their new album (as well as the fan fave “Ballroom Dance Scene”). Nora Cheng opens with her Fender Jaguar, tuned to open E, and then switches to her reliable Ibanez Roadstar II, while Penelope Lowenstein holds down the harmonic interplay and lower frequencies on her Squier Bass VI.
