Margate-based producer, multi-instrumentalist and songwriter Art School Girlfriend today shares details of her upcoming 2019 UK tour. The tour spans 8 cities across the UK finishing at London’s Omeara and follows a performance at this year’s SXSW.

Two months ago, Art School Girlfriend (AKA Polly Mackey) released her second EP Into The Blue Hour, a collection of sparse, beautiful electronic music inspired by her move away from south London’s arts scene to the burgeoning creative community in the seaside town of Margate. Since its release, Mackey has spent time touring with The Japanese House, DJing for Anna Calvi at her Heaven show, running her monthly show on Radio Margate and performing alongside Orlando Weeks (The Maccabees) at London’s Union Chapel and Manchester’s Albert Hall.

Into The Blue Hour saw Art School Girlfriend build on the blueprints of her earlier Measures EP and expand her toolkit as an electronic producer. See her perform at the Hyde Park Book Club in Leeds on April 4th.
