New Music // Goat – ‘It’s Time For Fun’

Swedish ‘world music’ band Goat have premiered their new track ‘Time For Fun.’

The track was recorded in New York in the winter months following the release of their second album ‘Commune’ which brought with it a ton of worldwide tour dates and big festival slots. The band felt that New York was a fitting location to record the track as there’s an ESG inspiration behind it as well as a dissonant, ’80s No Wave feel to it. It contains plenty of percussion that gives it a tribal feel which is typical of Goat but there’s also a driving, minimal drum machine beat that gives it a lo-fi sound. This track’s moved away from the huge psychedelic sounds present on their previous two albums and into fresh, new territory for them. It will be interesting to see what the B side, ‘Relax’ brings.

‘It’s Time for Fun’ will be released on the 7th August on Rocket Recordings. Listen to it below:
