Roaring like a stampede of fused funk, hard riffs and afrobeat the mystic mood of Sweden’s GOAT always attempts to entrance you under their spell. Their mystic performances, masks, veils, sixties psychedelia, mantras, chants and extended musical jams, around venues worldwide are the stuff of musical legend. Tonight, the Boiler Room will bear witness to their maximalist sonic rituals so attendees unfamiliar with the band live should be prepared to have their minds blown and expectations exploded.

These pranksters, sages or demons dive headfirst into their performances, possessing all the energy of a sack of brawling jackals, albeit ones that can pound drums, mash heavy bass riffs and thrill with jazz prog dexterity in equal measure – sometimes all at once. Whilst their immediate and often siren-sweet, sung-spoken vocals leap around, washing all over their wandering musical score. GOAT are unique and ostentatious. Offering, in what could be a monotone indie musical scene, brightly sparkling illumination – enlightening you could say – definitely more than enough to drag you from any midweek slump, and then some!

It’s worth noting that whilst this show is 14+, under 16s must be accompanied by someone aged 18 or over.

See Goat perform at Boiler Shop, Newcastle on Wednesday 19th April.
