This Christmas Santa Claus kindly deposited GOAT’s third studio album under my tree and I couldn’t be more chuffed with this gift, it’s a fantastic album from start to finish!
Described by the band as their “folk album,” Requiem is a harmonious array of rolling acoustic guitars and flutes, multi-layered rhythmic drones, and mystical lyrics chanted by female voices. If you haven’t heard it yet, I strongly recommend that you check it out!
It’s hard to single out ‘stand-out’ tracks because the whole album flows so gloriously, its melodic, entrancing and mesmerising track listing will inspire start-to-finish listening, you may even play it multiple times in one go like I have done today!
One song that I really love is Temple Rhythms with its insanely hypnotic percussion and exhilarating flutes.. Prepare to soar and listen above.
