Share new single ‘Crow Cries’
South London four-piece Goat Girl have released their new single ‘Crow Cries.‘ The track comes from a 7″ out Friday 25 August via Rough Trade / Remote Control.
Goat Girl formed a few years ago in South London, the band have been busy on the road for the last 18 months playing with everyone from The Fall to Parquet Courts.
Named after the questionable Bill Hicks comedy sketch Goat Boy (“It’s disgusting,” says Lottie, although she’s quick to add: “But I like his social commentary, and the satirical element to what he did,”) the band are fresh out of their respective London colleges and a million miles away from everything else ‘new’ you’ll hear right now.
The band’s furious sound represents how it feels to live in this current climate “There’s teenage angst in them,” says Ellie. “But I think that was inevitable, growing up in London over the last ten years.” All four members of Goat Girl have just turned 20, but their relative youth isn’t what makes them stand out. Rather, they feel so compelling because of the way they expertly pick through the holes of so-called millennial culture, not to mention the way the media and government are messing with the minds and future plans of an entire generation
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 as 2016 draws to a draggy close: four people playing guitars, bass and drums who have the ability to make you feel alive again.
Goat Girl are Clottie Cream, Rosy Bones, Naima Jelly and L.E.D.
