If you haven't yet met Gazelle Twin, it's hard to imagine a more fortuitous first exposure than the video above. Hailing from Brighton, England's Anti-Ghost Moon Ray collective (we heard from her cheerier comrade Acquaintance last month), the artist otherwise known as Elizabeth Bernholz has a knack for transmitting aural terror and utter beauty at the same time, as evidenced in past releases: 2011's The Entire City, 2013's Mammal EP. But new song "Belly of the Beast" horrifies most viscerally. Combining supermarket samples and Moog madness, our hostess seethes: "I'll beat them all at their own game / Bit the hands at the fingers that feed."

Meanwhile, the video, co-directed by Esther Springett finds our anti-heroine holed up in a barn, seemingly wreaking havoc on an unsuspecting public via telekinesis. With inspiration coming from David Cronenberg's The Brood (1979) and Nicolas Roeg's Don't Look Now (1973), it's a harrowing piece of art. "Belly of the Beast" hails from Gazelle Twin's next album, UNFLESH, due out later this year.
