The Legal Immigrants Release "Bily Goat" Single
Born decades beyond the golden age of their musical style, and with their debut album set to release July 3rd, The Legal Immigrants’ single “Bily Goat” juxtaposes the lyrics’ ‘puppy love’ message with the grittiness of Detroit garage rock bands.
According to Bockheim, the band’s lead singer and songwriter, “Bily Goat” was, “...written in the ‘puppy love’ phase of a relationship. So much hope, so much promise, so much to look forward to.” A heavy love, full of euphoric misery, and inspired by bands spanning decades, The Legal Immigrant’s single “Bily Goat” blends heavier blues rock riffs of Led Zeppelin with analog recordings reminiscent of fellow Michigan band, The White Stripes. Although recorded live on tape, this single highlights each individual member’s talents as well as the group’s skill in recording tight clean sounds in the studio while layering each instrument into the song.
