However, it’s safe to say that, whilst inherently punkish, this album lends it sounds to alternative rock, prog-rock and elements of electronic. Look no further than the first track ‘Pest’, a siesta of wild electronic riffs in the background, with moody vocals at the forefront and a simple yet effective melody.
My personal favourite track, ‘The Crack’, is a grungy and dark guitar-heavy experience that adopts an ethereal and spacey vocal arrangement. However, this is contrasted by such tracks as ‘Badibaba’, with a peppy and rose-tinted bass line which, while ever-present, traverses heavier bass lines and more minor-key arrangements.
Whilst a number of their songs may fall into a similar combination of moody-vocals, raw and distorted guitar and then a light interlude of positive electro-pop, I welcome their continuity. I think it’s exciting to see how they try and introduce Goat Girl tropes to new horizons. It’s very intriguing to hear how Clottie Cream’s refreshingly stripped-back, almost conversational vocals translate to genres such as jazz, indie and synth-pop.
In this way, On All Fours is a perfect blend of everything you’d expect from Goat Girl, and what their future has in store, and I can’t recommend it enough.
