Goat Girl Announce New Album 'Below The Waste'

Goat Girl - Lottie Pendlebury (she/her), Rosy Jones (they/them) and Holly Mullineaux (she/her) are excited to announce their third album 'Below The Waste' which is being released on Rough Trade Records on June 7th 2024. 

The album was co–produced by the band & John Spud Murphy (Lankum & black midi). The Record will be available on LP, Indie Shops LTD LP, Rough Trade Shops / Rough Trade Webstore LP, Dinked 2LP and CD. 

Pieced together like a collage over an extended period of time, the instrumentation was tracked mostly over a ten-day stint in Ireland at Hellfire Studios, in the shadow of the infamous Hellfire Club itself. Additional strings (Reuben Kyriakides and Nic Pendlebury), woodwind instruments (Alex McKenzie) and vocals (including a choir made up of family and friends) were added to this framework at a number of locations, from a barn in Essex to Goat Girl’s own studio in South London.

Singer Lottie on lead track: “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. 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.”


'ride around', the video for the new single by Goat Girl is directed and produced by filmmaking duo Luke Kulukundis and Mateo Villanueva Brandt from Foreign Body Productions, an award winning South London production company. 


The Directors on the video: “The film explores themes of outsiderdom via both desire and fear of connection. The strangeness of togetherness in the context of a drab city, mired in capitalist claustrophobia and absurd mundanity.”


The band will be doing a short underplay tour in March, including a London show at the ICA, and a record store tour on album release. They will announce a full headline UK & EU tour soon.
