“one of the most intimidating songs of 2018" - The Guardian
“I want to get the fuck out of here NOW” - is the panic-stricken sentiment behind Gazelle Twin’s searing new single, ‘Hobby Horse’ - serving up the first lick of her latest album ‘PASTORAL’ to be released on 21 September 2018.
HOBBY HORSE’s rousing and mantra-like spoken style - first heard in the body-dysmorphia inspired album UNFLESH (2014) and later in her touring A/V live show ‘KINGDOM COME’ - this time accompanies crazed galloping, incoherent, angry stadium chanting and eerie high-pitched howls.
The heavily cinematic B-side ‘DEEP ENGLAND’, spotlights and upturns a very English form of nostalgia as Bernholz croons “My silver cloud, My retail park, My cul de sac, My England.”
“Pastoral is an album that juggles British identities. A musing on how a sordid past becomes "quaint"... and that there is horror in every Idyll.”
