Horsegirl present video document from Chicago album release show
09 August 2022
Chicago band Horsegirl - Nora Cheng (guitar, vocals), Penelope Lowenstein (guitar, vocals), and Gigi Reece (drums) - released their debut album, Versions of Modern Performance, earlier this summer via Matador. The album was met with resounding praise, and the band played their first UK tour (including 4 sold-out London shows) as well as a slot at Glastonbury in June.
On June 5th, family, friends and fans all came together at Chicago’s Thalia Hall to support the band at their sold-out record release show. Now, Horsegirl present Do You Want Horsegirl or Do You Want the Truth?, a video document commemorating their Thalia Hall performance alongside other Chicago bands Lifeguard, Friko, and Post Office Winter. Artwork in-step with Horsegirl’s aesthetic are woven with live footage of all four bands. This is a testament to the youth scene in the city, and the powerful bonds amongst Horsegirl and their friends. As Rolling Stone neatly summarizes it, their “album release show feels like a celebration of the Chicago scene they’ve come up in over the past several years.”
