Kansas City electronic artist White Girl is fresh off an appearance at Dancefestopia, headlined by R3hab, DVBBS and MAKJ among others. White Girl is preparing to release his forthcoming 7” “M.E.T.R.O.R.O.C.K.” b/w “Cocky” on November 4 on vinyl and digital formats through Nice, Nice Records.
White Girl, the brain-child of Martin Bush, is a live electronic dance-infused romp through eternal fields of post-punk grasses and rolling new wave hills. Bush’s dual inspirations for the forthcoming 7″ were Kraftwerk’s Computer World and Prince’s Purple Rain, and Kansas City newspaper The Pitch praises the release for the way that it “moves subtly between Kavinsky-style vocodered electronics and big, shimmering guitars.”
Bush previously fronted rock/pop band Audiovox (winner of “Best New Act” 2009 and “Best Pop Act” 2010 at Kansas City’s Pitch Music Awards), and played at the last three SXSW festivals, CMJ 2012 and Middle Of The Map fest, in addition to performing non-festival sets with Ra Ra Riot, Passion Pit, Owl City, Parallels, Inner Party System, Glass Animals, El Ten Eleven, Cinnamon Chaser and Airborne Toxic Event.
Today Ghettoblaster has a premiere of the 7″‘s A-side, which you can enjoy here:
