Premiere: Best Girl Athlete – ‘Hills’

Gorgeous piece of lo-fi indie pop...

Best Girl Athlete is a project led by the imagination of Katie Buchan, a rising songwriter from Aberdeen.

At only 15 years of age, the singer would struggle to get into some venues – yet her assured artistry is already sparking a flurry of attention.

New album 'Carve Every Word' is out now, with Clash able to premiere the video for sample cut 'Hills'.

A gorgeous piece of lo-fi indie pop, comparisons could include the sweeter side of The xx or even Warpaint. However there are odd moments of distinction, such as the warm, enveloping cello which brings to mind fondly remembered Scottish group The Delagados.

The accompanying visuals were shot at Ruthrieston Temporary Art Space, Aberdeen by Jon Reid.
