Meet ‘Em – Goat Girl

Returning with their third record ‘Below the Waste’, South London post-punk outfit Goat Girl are heading to Notts on 24th March, so we got to know ’em!

Hiya Goat Girl! Welcome to The Bodega, how are you feeling on the run up to the tour?

Thanks so much for having us, we love Nottingham. Super excited to be back and playing new tunes!! Can’t wait for people to see/hear what we’ve been up to.

There’s a dark undertone to your latest single ‘Ride Around’, do you feel you’ve explored a different side to your music with some of your latest songwriting?

I feel like we’ve explored the vastness of Goat Girl with this album, we really delved into the extremes of our sound.

What is the writing process like for you guys? Does it tend to start with an individual idea or is it always a collaborative process?

It can start with an individual idea that someone brings, or also it can be things we come up with together while jammin. The structuring, arranging and leftover writing is always a collaboration which is maybe why it takes us 3 years to release an album haha.

We’re buzzing to hear ‘Below The Waste’, do you find that touring is a good way to gauge new material?

Well all of this album was written and recorded without us ever having played it live to anyone which has been quite interesting, we definitely got quite cabin fevery with it at points but it’s all come together perfectly now.

The album was recorded in a number of locations, do you feel that influenced the overall sound at all?

Yeah for sure, from the first phase in the Dublin Mountains where we added chains and misc farm equipment as percussion, and cow moos too. To our synth player Reuben’s barn in Essex which felt like a home away from home. And our own little studio in South London where we got our friends and family to come down and be a choir for us – they all influenced the sound in their own ways.

Lastly, if there was a limitless budget what would be three things you’d have on the rider?

Ooh good question, probably some kind of delicious elderflower drink, Marlboro Golds and Lindt chocolate.

Goat Girl headline The Bodega on the 24th March. Tickets on sale now.
