Goat Girl originated in 2015, when the four Londoners continually crossed paths at gigs and open mic nights across South London. The quartet’s combined talents resulted in a uniquely defiant sound with conscious lyricism, all of which wasted no time in pricking the ears of British record label Rough Trade. Using the Brixton Windmill as a sounding board, they’re citing fellow performers Bat-Bike, Horsey, Meatraffle and Warmduscher as influences.
Goat Girl’s sophomore album, 'On All Fours' reveals an unseen depth and vulnerability. This nuanced shift in lyricism indicates Goat Girl’s maturing perspectives in discussing the world's injustices and social prejudices, using the music to explore global, humanitarian, environmental and mindful well-being.
The musical language of Goat Girl is a gritty, guitar-driven sound, using a lot of sci-fi synthesisers, off-beat chord progressions, analogue drums machines and diverse vocal styles.
“The thirteen tracks that make up the album are wonderfully wonky. They are also incredibly catchy, with subtle sci-fi tinges to them.” – The Quietus
