Goat Girl Announce New Album ‘Below the Waste’, Share New Single

    Goat Girl have announced their next LP: Below the Waste will be released on June 7 via Rough Trade. The band’s Lottie Pendlebury, Rosy Jones, and Holly Mullineaux co-produced the follow-up to 2021’s On All Fours with John Spud Murphy, known for his work with black midi and Lankum. Check out the lead single ‘ride around’ below, and scroll down for the album artwork (by Toby Evans-Jesra and Aidan Evans-Jesra) and tracklist.

    “I was listening to lots of music at the time by Phillip Glass and Deerhoof that plays with the relationship between tension and resolution which definitely influenced this song,” Pendlebury said of ‘ride around’ in a statement. “I was yearning for honesty and authenticity in relationships I held with people, probably partly because at the time, like everyone, we were so isolated from one another. But it also felt deeper than that, like the conversations I dreamt of stripped away all of the etiquettes we desperately clung onto and went below the surface to where the most interesting parts of ourselves tend to be suppressed.”

    The track comes with a music video directed by Luke Kulukundis and Mateo Villanueva Brandt of Foreign Body Productions. “The film explores themes of outsiderdom via both desire and fear of connection,” they commented. “The strangeness of togetherness in the context of a drab city, mired in capitalist claustrophobia and absurd mundanity.”
