Gazelle Twin has released the video for ‘Hobby Horse’, the first single from her forthcoming album, Pastoral, out on Anti-Ghost Moon Ray on September 21. The video, directed by long-time collaborator Chris Turner, firmly puts the album’s themes – exhuming England’s rotten past and showing its ever-darkening present – into focus.
Elizabeth Bernholz aka Gazelle Twin, explains, 'Hobby Horse' is yet another fun-but-deranged experiment in an ever-growing catalogue of collaborations with director Chris Turner. We have a mutual appreciation for the uncanny - especially the kind tinged with a bit of ultra-violence. It's great working with someone who knows how to capitalise on every kind of "weird" there is, yet still managing to keep performance at the core.’
Gazelle Twin has announced a series of live performances, following the album’s live debut at Supersonic festival, that includes Rough Trade East on Thursday September 27.
