The Goon Sax - She Knows

The Goon Sax - She Knows
The Goon Sax are James Harrison, Louis Forster and Riley Jones. Still in high school when they made their first album Up To Anything in 2016, their brand of awkwardly transcendent teenage guitar pop took them into end of year lists for BBC 6Music, Billboard and Rough Trade, and earned them raves from the Guardian, Pitchfork, Spin, Uncut, Rolling Stone and elsewhere.

The Goon Sax toured UK and Europe twice, played shows with Whitney, US Girls, Twerps and Teenage Fanclub, graduated school, and then turned their focus to album number two. They flew to Melbourne to record with James Cecil and Cameron Bird, respectively former/current members of Architecture In Helsinki.

New album We're Not Talking shows how much can change between the ages of 17 and 19. It takes the enthusiasms of youth and twists them into darker, more sophisticated shapes. Relationships are now laced with hesitation, remorse, misunderstanding and ultimately compassion.

Drummer Riley Jones really comes to the fore, joining Louis and James in writing and singing songs for the first time. We’re Not Talking is a album made by restless artists, defying expectations as if hardly noticing, and its complexity makes it even more of a marvel.

About this track...

The first single from new The Goon Sax album We're Not Talking, She Knows marries sublime indie-pop with frenetic, scratchy post-punk. The song is full of surprising angles and jagged sounds to create a perfectly awkward pop gem.
