GOAT GIRL – ” Scum “

Goat Girl, are a band willing to insult everyone who crosses their path. On ‘Scum’, their second track to date, the Rough Trade signings filter frustration through an Iceage-like racket. Trading blows with every modern day evil, they boldly ask: “How can an entire nation be so fucking thick?” It would be convenient to call ‘Scum’ a post-Brexit call to arms. But you get the sense Goat Girl’s sense of unease has been bubbling up for years.

On the one hand, their dry wit sarcasm (“hold tight to your pale ales”, they bellow at one point) and faux-jolly, drunken and staggering melodies aren’t a flash of light in the dark. But few spit such venom with this kind of nonchalance. For every axe they grind, they express disgust like few others.

Goat Girl’s debut double a-side single “Country Sleaze” / “Scum” is out now on Rough Trade Records
