What’s On with… Goat Girl

South London’s Goat Girl present acute portraits of equal angst and passion; it’s pencilled in by their discordant, laconic delivery and given colour by their honest, transparent nature.

Who

With the band name deriving from an infamous sketch by the celebrated comedian, Bill Hicks, they seem most comfortable when they’re sticking two fingers up to millennial culture and not taking things too seriously. But now they’re signed to Rough Trade, following on from the success of their debut release, Country Sleaze, they’ve supported The Fall and they’re about to tap into the underbelly of a whole new, pissed-off generation.

What

Their latest single, ‘Crow Cries’, is hypnotic in form. Released August 25th, the song’s genius is in the blending of that signature, sinister dirge with swathes of eerie harmonies, making it both brittle and broad. Listen below:
