“Amongst a constant tsunami of music submissions, from time to time one or two really do make you sit up and listen intently to every note, beat, sound. Goya is one such band that did for us exactly that. Their talent and musicianship is unquestionable, all making for a listening experience of real joy.” – Real Rocks Show
Goya is a new post-rock group from Stoke on Trent who have been impressing audiences with their own take on progressive music, and choosing to let the guitars, bass, and drums do the talking with their “must listen to” instrumental debut EP. Titled ‘Kathmandu’, the ep is released 8th December 2017.
Guitarist Jase Kester says, “For us the ep is the initial musical statement from Goya. We recorded everything old school live in the studio, so what you hear is the sound of musicians interacting with one another in the same room. We’ve tried to take all the things we love about rock – the riffs, rhythms and sounds, the building blocks and devices – strip away some things that we feel have become clichés of the genre, in an attempt to create Absolute Music.
This isn’t us beingpretentious… this is Goya existing right now and it’s where we have to be.”
