GIITTV: Track of the Day#; Goat Girl – ‘Crow Cries’

Following their awesome debut single ‘Country Sleaze’ last year, Goat Girl – aka Clottie Cream, Naima Jelly, L.E.D and Rosy Bones – have been burrowed away in a London studio cooking up new music. The first fruits of this session are the band’s new single “Crow Cries,” rumbling with a sinuous menace that takes the intersection between limber post-punk and gothic underbelly, a delirious concoction of swampy basslines and push and pull crescendos laced with the brooding intensity of their shadowy tangled harmonies. It entices intriguingly of what’s to come, it’s out on limited edition 7″ b/w “Mighty Despair” via Rough Trade on 25th August. Listen here:

Fresh out of their respective London colleges the group’s furious sound, topped with lyrics which expertly pick through the holes of so-called millennial culture, represents how it feels to live in this current climate: “There’s teenage angst in them,” says L.E.D. “But I think that was inevitable, growing up in London over the last ten years.”

Having been honing their live show over the past year on tours with the likes of Parquet Courts, Girl Band and The Lemon Twigs, the South London four-piece will now embark on a summer of festival appearances and a slot supporting The Fall in London, followed by their first headline tour.
