If you were looking for a buzzy band from London you’d be hard pressed to look beyond this group from South London known as Goat Girl. Signed to Rough Trade with a few brilliant tracks already in the can (‘Country Sleaze’ and ‘Scum’) the new one hints at even more to come from this band.
‘Crow Cries’ is the new track and reeks of all the besmirched glamour that made ‘Country Sleaze’ such a back alley banger. Grimy and with a definitely diseased undertone the new track will be released as part of a AA side set for release next month.
The band need to be seen live to be truly appreciated as they rank highly among their compatriots in South London (Yowl, Dead Pretties, HMTLD) for being a bit fucking good at gigging. A huge UK tour should do the trick then. All dates are below but for now get your ears wrapped around this one.
