Horsegirl "Ballroom Dance Scene"

Three high school friends, Gigi Reece, Nora Cheng, and Penelope Lowenstein, formed Horsegirl last year and this month packaged the three songs they have written, the newest being "Ballroom Dance Scene", into a wonderful new EP. It is that new song that has landed the trio in the spotlight, on NPR and in the Tribune, and when you listen you will hear why.

"Ballroom Dance Scene" is the perfect balance of odd, beautiful, deadpan, and graceful as it builds and swirls like the dance scene it is depicting. It brings to mind the sounds of Nico, Bell & Sebastian, Sebadoh, and Stereolab, and if you check out the girl weekly radio hour you may get a better sense of their vibe.
