On All Fours
, the follow-up to their self-titled debut album, introduced the world to a more grown-up Goat Girl
. Their confidence to experiment has led to a richly textured album that explores a softer, more electronic sound. In drummer Rosy Bones’s own words, now they make “songs long enough that you can dance to them.” The South London band have matured lyrically, delving into their own experiences of depression and anxiety while offering up sharp critiques of Western hypocrisy, capitalism and transphobia. I sat down with Rosy to discuss Goat Girl’s journey so far, the process of making On All Fours
and why protecting independent music venues is vital to the health of the music industry.
