Goat Girl have a debut album coming, introduced with the thrilling new cut ‘The Man’

The LP is out on April 6th, marked with a lovely UK headline tour to boot
We’ve been waiting patiently, and now Goat Girl are ready to take over – with details of their self-titled debut album revealed today with the scorching new number ‘The Man’.

Fizzing and bouncing off itself with an energy that’s ready to kick down any doors or boundaries in its way, it’s a grand way to shape things up ahead of their long-awaited debut album – and bound to cause many a scene at gigs from this point onwards.

The 19 track collection (including interludes) is set to land on April 6th, and when speaking about the album the band described its story and relation to living in London and everything the city represents for a new generation.

“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.

This world is populated by creeps and liars, lovers, dreamers and wonderful lunatics. 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 Lottie’s filthy drawl. “It wasn’t exactly intentional to have this warped country sound, but I think that was initially what we were all drawn to and inspired by, bands that existed in a lo-fi, dissonant, scratchy context.”

Goat Girl will tour the emphatic sounds and scratchy joys of the album on their upcoming UK tour, kicking off on March 31st in Manchester and then calling into Cardiff, Newcastle, Edinburgh, Liverpool, Dublin, Sheffield, Birmingham, London, Leicester and Leeds before rounding things out nicely at The Haunt in Brighton on April 21st.
