In preparation for their debut album being released on April 6th, Goat Girl dropped a new single a few days ago. After dropping The Man in early February, the south London scenesters have given us another taster of the upcoming self-titled LP, Throw Me A Bone.
The three-piece have swapped the hectic guitars and the frenzied tempo of The Man for a darker, more atmospheric sound on Throw Me A Bone. The track starts off with a lone, menacing bass riff, tugging and straining, creating a moody undercurrent over which the slower-than-usual guitars can proceed to work their bewitching magic. Lead singer, Clottie Cream, provides deep, syrupy vocals adding a layer of beguiling beauty, which almost draws the listener away from the prickly lyrics.
The finished article is a brilliantly crafted track that further raises expectations of the album, with the girls promising not to disappoint. Chances are, more tracks off the new album will be heard live over the next few weeks as the band go on tour around Britain.
