 Art School Girlfriend, Aka Polly Mackey, has announced that her forthcoming second album Soft Landing, is set to be released via Fiction Records on August 8, 2023. The album is self-described as a series of “small euphorias”, it is an album that finds Mackey shifting her sound towards tactile 
electronics whilst retaining the floating melodies of her debut.  
 
With the announcement, Mackey has released one of her strongest tracks to date, titled “Close To The Clouds”, which follows the success of 
standalone single “A Place To Lie” earlier this year. “Close To The Clouds” is an integral part of Soft Landing, with the central refrain providing the 
album with its title, and the song unfurling into climbing, arpeggiated synths amidst acid-house indebted drums.  
 
Soft Landing follows Mackey’s 2020 debut album, Is It Light Where You Are? an album made in the wake of a tumultuous time and released during 
one. Soft Landing feels like Mackey’s true debut, a record of curiosity and playfulness with songs that sound like they are falling effortlessly into place.
