Following the release of ‘Sad Cowboy’, today South London quartet Goat Girl release their new single‘The Crack’ via Rough Trade / Remote Control Records. The second single taken from their forthcoming album On All Fours (out Friday 29 January, 2021), ‘The Crack’ is accompanied by a timely and surreal video, directed by Molly Ann Pendlebury and premiered overnight viaThe FADER.
Goat Girl say of the track, “‘The Crack’ emerged from an imagined post-apocalyptic world whereby people flee into space for a new life on an unruined planet, as the result of the pillaging of Planet Earth.”
Molly Ann Pendlebury: “‘The Crack’ intimates a world at the mercy of its inhabitants. I wanted to create a video which indirectly plays with notions of environmentalism and our relationship to the earth whilst never explicitly being a film about climate change. After discussing the context of the song with the band and its place within their upcoming album, I decided to focus on the relationship between the characters and their connection to the earth. Developing the illustrations of brothers Toby and Aiden Evans-Jesra, the masks and costumes represent the individuality of the characters whilst connecting them to each other and their surroundings. Playing with subtle and restrictive movement, the performers are ‘on all fours’; alluding to the albums title, and moving collectively as one; portraying a journey through a land lost to time.
New album On All Fours, sees the band veer away from the confrontational lyricism of their acclaimed self-titled debut & indicates Goat Girl’s maturing perspectives in discussing the world’s injustices and social prejudices, using the music to explore global, humanitarian, environmental and mindful wellbeing.
It was produced by Dan Carey (Kate Tempest, black midi, Franz Ferdinand) in South London in early 2020, and will be available on black double LP, transparent pink double LP & CD.
Goat Girl are Lottie Cream, Rosy Bones, Holly Hole and L.E.D.
