Produced by Dan Carey, ‘Goat Girl’ an extraordinary debut born out of the burgeoning, close-knit South London scene. It’s a glorious mesh of sharp-eyed observations like The Kinks, louche rage like The Slits, as well as swampy swaggering guitars and Clottie Cream’s filthy drawl about the world around the band as she explains: “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.”
The album features tracks “Cracker Drool”, “Throw Me A Bone” and “The Man”, for which the band made this gender-fllipped take on Beatlemania video.
Goat Girl are hitting the UK/EU roads before heading to America to tour with fellow label mates Parquet Courts. Grab your tickets HERE.
