Chicago’s Horsegirl are sharing brand new track ‘World of Pots and Pans’, lifted from their upcoming debut album ‘Versions of Modern Performance’, which is set for release on 3rd June via Matador.
“‘World of Pots and Pans’ is the first love song Horsegirl has ever written—or the closest thing to it,” the band explain. “We wrote it in Penelope’s basement while preparing to leave for our first ever tour. The lyrics, inspired by the misinterpretation of a Television Personalities lyric, imagine a (possibly unrequited) romance unfolding through references to Tall Dwarfs, Belle & Sebastian, and The Pastels.
“We made the lyric video in a couple hours. The three of us had a fully formed vision of what it should look like and were able to quickly execute the real-time ‘animation’ in only two takes. It feels special to showcase our creative chemistry, and Nora was able to finally carry out her childhood dreams of making an OK Go (ish) type video.”
