Goat Girl, have today announced details of their much-anticipated debut album.
Goat Girl, produced by Dan Carey (Kate Tempest / Franz Ferdinand) in his South London studio in the Autumn of 2017, is set for release on April 6th via Rough Trade Records.
After releasing a steady stream of totally compelling goth/country/punk/60s Brit hybrid singles over the last year and a half including; debut double a-side ‘Country Sleaze’/’Scum’, and 2017’s ‘Cracker Drool’; recalling a spectrum of influences along the way, from The Slits and The Kinks, to The Cramps and The Breeders, the South London 4-piece have today also treated us to new single (and video), ‘The Man‘.
In a role reversed take of The Beatles A Hard Day’s Night, the video puts members Lottie ‘Clottie Cream’, Ellie ‘L.E.D’, Naima Jelly and Rosy Bones in the middle of their own ‘Goatgirlmania’ – complete with 1960s-era British bobbies holding back hoards of excited male fans.
Watch the clip below.
Talking about their debut album, which features 19 tracks over 40 minutes, the band explain:
“Simply put, it’s an album that comes from growing up in London and the first-hand experience of our city’s devolution. We wanted to think of it as this place seen not necessarily just through our eyes, but someone who can’t get past the abnormalities and strange happenings that exist in our city. We think this gives the freedom lyrically and musically to explore unspoken truths and emotions that we all as humans feel”.
Goat Girl is available for pre-order, here. There will be a limited edition Violet Vinyl coloured LP and a special bundle featuring the Violet LP and a limited-edition Fanzine art a lyric booklet, singed by the band.
The band will also be heading out to Austin, Texas for this years SXSW in March before embarking on UK headline tour throughout April. Current 2018 Dates below.
