With her debut album ‘Is It Light Where You Are’ arriving on 10th September via Fiction Records, Art School Girlfriend is now sharing the title track.
“This is probably my favourite track and video I’ve ever released,” writes Art School Girlfriend’s Polly Mackey. “The song wrote itself really quickly; it felt like I was chasing it. It’s based around a phone conversation with someone I was trying to get over, someone who was in a different place to me both mentally and physically. The title ‘Is It Light Where You Are’ has a double meaning: obviously time zones, but also, my world felt quite dark to me at that point and I was trying to make it light.”
Accompanied by a fan-contributed video, she adds, “I put a call out to fans asking them to film the skyline wherever they were in the world, all at the same time — 8:30pm BST on July 2nd 2021 — to help answer the question: is it light where you are?”

A wholly atmospheric synth-driven debut doused in heartbreak.
It’s out in September.
It’s the first track taken from her forthcoming debut album.
The dreamy track gets some equally dreamy visuals.
