London’s most thrilling new band Goat Girl – aka Clottie Cream, Rosy Bones, Naima Jelly and L.E.D – have announced that their debut, self-titled album will be released on 6th April! (violet coloured vinyl + a limited edition signed fanzine art and lyrics booklet available from Rough Trade webstore).

To whet your appetite, the fourpiece have unleashed the official video for their killer new single and longtime live favourite “The Man”, directed by CC Wade and described by the band as “a parody on fandom and a delve into the male psyche”

‘Goat Girl’ was produced by fellow South Londoner Dan Carey in in the Autumn of 2017. It’s a very English album – sharp-eyed observations like The Kinks, louche rage like The Slits – but it’s also full of swampy swaggering guitars and singer Clottie’s filthy drawl. In the group’s words: “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”.

Spawned within the burgeoning, close-knit South London scene that includes Shame and Sorry, and having supported the likes of The Fall, Fat White Family and Parquet Courts, Goat Girl are something to behold live!
