It’s her first original track since 2021.

Two years on since the release of ‘Is It Light Where You Are’, Art School Girlfriend - aka Polly Mackey - is back with new single ‘A Place To Lie’.

Inspired by her DJ sets and radio show on female-led Foundation FM, ‘A Place To Lie’ marks Art School Girlfriend’s move into a “new space” as an artist and producer.

In our review of her last album ‘Is It Light Where You Are’, we said, “Clocking in at an immersive 43 minutes, ‘Is It Light Where You Are’ is a wholly atmospheric synth-driven debut album doused in heartbreak. Throughout its ten tracks, Polly Mackey - under her stage moniker Art School Girlfriend - sings in a low, drowsy vocal of grieving an ex-partner and feeling empty and alone in the wake of a breakup, all the while wondering if her ex feels the same as she asks, ‘Is there light where you are?’”
