Once described as Kylie Minogue on acid, Annie Hockeysmith's bewitching electronic explorations connect her immersion in rave subcultures with clearer pop intentions. Weaving glimpses of R&B and synth-pop into shuffling rhythms and gauzy textures, Hockeysmith smash together the linear structures of club music with the visceral shoegaze textures of MBV, Ride, Cocteau Twins, and Sonic Youth.

"Comeback of the year" - The Line of Best Fit
"'Holy War', marks a brave step on from the sound of her previous incarnation and ramps up the excitement for a body of work that could give a much needed shot in the arm to the homogenised sound of current electronic R&B." – Dummy
