“Thanks to their guttural guitar music, the fun-loving foursome are leading a new wave of bands with no time for the blokeish arrogance of yore.” – Sam Wolfson, The Guardian
Goat Girl are a special band. Songs that use subtlety as their main ingredient while remaining disarmingly fierce at every turn. Lyrics that mean everything despite being written down in the most simplistic and non-aggressive way possible… they are an anomaly in the UK music scene: four people playing guitars, bass and drums who have the ability to make you feel //alive// again.
Goat Girl’s raw brand of classic garage pop subversion has proved irresistible to those in the know so far, which is why despite barely playing any shows in public before this summer, nearly every day in the first quarter of 2016 a fresh face from the music industry would randomly appear at the band’s dark and damp rehearsal space in south London, contract in hand, desperately trying to sign them.
After signing to Rough Trade, they released their debut double A side single ‘Country Sleaze’ / ‘Scum’ on 7th October 2016. Working on their debut album and touring extensively throughout 2017, don’t miss their electric live show in Oxford.
