What Does She Sound Like?
Take the grace of London Grammar, the pulse of Austra and the raw passion of Nick Cave and you've got something a bit like Art School Girlfriend.
Why Should I Be Excited?
Dreamy soundscapes and gorgeous melancholia come together in each Art School Girlfriend track, it's bewitching.
