Goat Girl’s sophomore album, On All Fours veers away from the confrontational lyricism of their angst-fuelled self-titled debut, to a previously unseen depth and vulnerability. This nuanced shift in lyricism 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. On All Fours is a creature we come to know as emblematic of all our world’s beauty and monstrosities rolled into one that breathes and lives in a strangely comforting idiosyncrasy. Aided by Goat Girl’s new interchangeable approach with instrumentation and songwriting, On All Fours showcases the pinnacle of the band’s collaborative artistry, which acts as a catalyst for fresh sonic territory. Goat Girl’s frequent use of sci-fi synthesisers, off-beat chord progressions, analogue drums machines, diverse vocal styles and distinct, gritty guitars fuse a musical language that expresses both former characteristics and newer developments of the band’s sound and vision.
