Info for Is It Light Where You Are



Is It Light Where You Are is the debut album from Art School Girlfriend, moniker of Welsh producer, multi-instrumental musician and song writer Polly Mackey. Mostly written over a two week period of 14-hour solo studio sessions, the bulk of her album is torn straight from a journal kept throughout 2019. Those pages chronicle the end of a US tour, the tumultuous ending of a six-year relationship and Mackey’s journey back to London from Margate, where she lived and co-owned a book shop with her then girlfriend. “The record starts with that feeling of being on the precipice of change,” she explains. “Before deciding to pull everything apart, go through it all and come out the other side.” While the lyrics are autobiographical, the full story can be heard in the album’s sonic relief map. “The main theme is duality between light and dark, lightness and heaviness. The production sort of mimics human emotions: there’s a lot of beauty buried underneath these uncomfortable-to-listen-to sounds.”

Art School Girlfriend



Polly Mackey aka Art School Girlfriend
Earning sonic comparisons to the ethereal, reverb-laden style of acts such as Daughter and the xx, Art School Girlfriend is an atmospheric electronic project from musician and singer/songwriter Polly Mackey. Hailing from Wrexham, North Wales, Mackey developed a taste for the work of artists like PJ Harvey and the Jesus & Mary Chain, as well as various new wave and shoegaze acts. After dabbling in a number of bands, she relocated to London where she lived for five years before settling in Margate, Kent. There she began writing her own songs -- inspired by her own experiences as well as the written works of Virginia Woolf and Milan Kundera -- and began listening to more electronic music from artists like John Maus and Caribou. Opting for the moniker "Art School Girlfriend," her songs caught the attention of Grammy Award-winning producer Paul Epworth (Florence + the Machine, Adele) and she signed with his label, Wolf Tone Records, in 2017. Her debut EP, Measures, followed later that year and Mackey promoted the release with live performances around the U.K. in 2018. (ob Wacey, AMG)
