GOAT (jp)
Institute of Contemporary Arts

Following back-to-back sold out shows at London Jazz Festival in 2023, we are delighted to welcome GOAT to the ICA. 

Hailing from Osaka, Japan, GOAT challenge the typical rock-band set up with their unique, intricate approach to minimalism, prioritizing pure percussive sound over melodic content. They build compositions that explore rhythms and bringing audiences into trance like fatigue. Utilizing harmonics outside standard tonality along with clever muting, GOAT craft complex, driven, forceful compositions which are both urban and tribal at the same time. Their percussion, for example, comprising of bass drum, snare and hi-hat with a muted bass for every string to hit with a punch. 

"Perhaps the tightest band in existence right now... we ain’t talking about the Swedish psych troupe, nor the Greek metal act; but the infinitely superior Japanese GOAT (jp) who take the micro-precision of computer music and play it on instruments" Boomkat
