Goat Girl are Lottie Cream, L.E.D, Holly Hole and Rosy Bones: a south London band born from the Brixton Windmill scene. Here they tell us their 10 rules for life, creativity and collaboration.

Goat Girl originated in 2015, when the four Londoners (Lottie Cream, L.E.D, Holly Hole and Rosy Bones) came together through their love of music and like-minded attitudes, continually crossing paths at gigs and open mic nights across south London. Using the Brixton Windmill venue as a sounding board, the warped, country-tinged sound of their debut album Goat Girl engulfed the sonic and social landscape that the band were surrounded by. Goat Girl’s sophomore album On All Fours – featuring new bassist Holly Hole – veers away from the confrontational lyricism of their angst-fuelled self-titled debut, to a previously unseen depth and vulnerability. The band’s frequent use of sci-fi synthesisers, off-beat chord progressions, analog 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.

Manifesto is a series on WePresent which invites activists and creatives with something to say to write 10 rules to live by, in order to help spread their message. The artwork on this page was created by Toby and Aidan Evans-Jesra.
