Chicago indie-rock band Horsegirl released a new single titled “World of Pots and Pans.”
The new track is a love song complete with fuzzy post-punk instrumentals and deadpan vocals reminiscent of The Jesus and Mary Chain. Despite the rugged exterior of the song, there is a tender charm in the lyrics that describes an unrequited romance.
The accompanying lyric video features the band placing the lyrics on an overhead projector in time with the music.
“’World of Pots and Pans’ is the first love song Horsegirl has ever written—or the closest thing to it. We wrote it in Penelope’s basement while preparing to leave for our first-ever tour. The lyrics, inspired by the misinterpretation of a Television Personalities lyric, imagine a (possibly unrequited) romance unfolding through references to Tall Dwarfs, Belle & Sebastian, and The Pastels,” the band said of the new single.
“We made the lyric video in a couple hours. The three of us had a fully formed vision of what it should look like and were able to quickly execute the real-time ‘animation’ in only two takes. It feels special to showcase our creative chemistry, and Nora was able to finally carry out her childhood dreams of making an OK Go (ish) type video,” they added.

The group has been making waves in the music community recently as they have just won the Grulke Prize for Developing U.S. Act at SXSW. Earlier this year, the band announced they will be releasing their debut album, Versions of Modern Performance, on June 3 via Matador Records. Prior to “Worlds of Pots and Pans,” the dynamic single “Anti-glory” was released to support the album announcement.
