Any band who is capable of splicing, country, pop, punk and indie into one neat little package – and do so without looking like a knob, has our vote for pretty much anything. Goat Girl is just that band and their new track ‘The Man’, released to showcase the upcoming album has just got a big ‘X’ in the ballot box from Far Out.

Having shared ‘Cracker Drool’ and B-side ‘Scream’ late last year the South London band have now shared another cut from their debut self-titled album, which will be out April 6th on Rough Trade. The song ‘The Man’ is another tune filled to the brim with a fuzzy nonchalance and harmonised twang.

It’s a brilliantly astute release from a band who only exceed their likability with their inherent musical ability. Mashing together so many different sounds across a wide range of subject Goat Girl are starting to sound like a superhero we can all love. “There goes Goat Girl!”

With all this in mind, they’ve even released a cracker of a video to run alongside the track. It’s a gentle subversion of The Beatles’ classic ‘Help!’ and sees the band being chased down the road a la Beatlemania.

You can watch the video below, as well as a sneak peak at the huge tracklisting for Goat Girl aaaand some tour dates.
