Goat Girl are a London based, alt-rock band who earlier this year released their self-titled debut album. Despite all of the singles being fantastic pieces that melded grunge, rock and a few other genres into the melting pot I found that the album never really resonated that deeply with me. Due to the singles though I'd already booked a ticket to see them, so I was excited to see how the album translated to the stage. That was until it was cancelled on the day of the event due to the drummer falling sick, this was in march and the day finally rolled around which they'd scheduled.
With their goat heads on poles on stage and the lighting of The Cookie it was a dreary affair, and the morbid sounds of Goat Girl's music added to the darkness of the atmosphere. It was as enticing as it was exciting to see a band that were so into their own image of dark music that it conveyed onto the stage. With their socially charged tracks and their ability to stir this atmosphere it made Goat Girl such a brilliant band to see live, but they may just be an acquired taste.
