After sharing ‘Cracker Drool’ and B-side ‘Scream’ late last year, Goat Girl have shared details of their upcoming debut album!
According to Rough Trade, their self-titled record will be out on 6th April and its set to be 19 tracks long. Speaking of the LP on the Rough Trade site, the band said: “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”. See the tracklisting below.

They’ve also shared ‘The Man’, another whip-smart, scuzzed-up number with some brilliantly ramshackle, laid-back harmonies and twangy riffs. It’s also got a killer, explosive hook to boot!
Goat Girl are also gearing up to go on a string of UK tour dates in March and April, which kick off at Manchester’s Deaf Institute and end at The Haunt in Brighton (with a huge date at London’s Garage and much more in-between). Tickets are on sale now. They’re also set for this year’s Green Man.
