Hailing from Osaka, Japan – Goat challenge the typical rock-band set up with their unique, intricate approach to minimalism, prioritising pure percussive sound over melodic content. Utilising harmonics outside standard tonality, as well as clever muting, Goat craft complex, driven, forceful compositions.

Using prepared guitars, electronics, percussion and saxophone, Housewives create an enveloping sound of syncopated rhythms and antithetical song structures. Droning bass lines underpin ethereal samples, whilst precise guitar lines mix with minimal drum parts in ecstatic fashion. Their kinetic live sets have cemented their reputation as one of the most exciting live bands in Europe; championed by the likes of Tom Ravenscroft (BBC 6 Music), Radio3 Late Junction and pioneering experimental musician Charles Hayward (This Heat).They join the like of Liars, Animal Collective and The Knife in laying the gauntlet for experimental music this decade and pushing the boundaries of what a live band can do.
