it’s the job of an artist to capture something of the tenor of the age they live in, and Pastoral fits the bill: a mad jig along a cliff edge.
Amidst a flock of excellent reviews flying in this week including Electronic Sound Magazine, Mojo, and The Wire, we’re especially chuffed to see Pitchfork review Gazelle Twin’s ‘Pastoral’. The album is out this Friday.
“Bound to shake your walls and rattle your windows” —-Max Reinhardt, BBC RADIO 3
“The first bit of evidence that Elizabeth Bernholz’s next album Pastoral – due out in September – could be her best to date” —-THE QUIETUS
“Will likely be one of the year’s very best records.” —-CLASH
Gazelle Twin’s long-awaited new album ‘Pastoral’ is now available to pre-order through her online shop, and Indie record shops in the UK. Available on limited edition Red Vinyl, or Black Vinyl, and CD Digipak.
After announcing a premiere and headlining performance at Supersonic Festival 2018 on June 23, Gazelle Twin has now announced the release date of her newest album, ‘Pastoral’, on 21.09.18, together with a searing new single ‘Hobby Horse’ and b-side ‘Deep England’ out on 22.06.18. Both out on Anti-Ghost Moon Ray, with support from the PRS Foundation’s Momentum Fund – an award granted in 2017.
“Pastoral is an album that juggles British identities,” Bernholz explains. “A musing on how a sordid past becomes ‘quaint’… and that there is horror in every Idyll.” Elizabeth Bernholz
The Quietus premiered the track here, you can pre-order here at GT’s Bandcamp page, and listen via GT’s YouTube channel.
