Goose was formed in the summer of 2000 in Kortrijk, Belgium. They started writing and recording their own songs, heavily incorporating synthesizers into them. They won Humo's Rock Rally in 2002 and later that year recorded their debut single "Audience" with Teo Miller. Coca-Cola used their debut single for TV adverts across Europe.

Goose released their second album Synrise on 18 October 2010. The first single of this album is called 'Words' and was aired on the radio for the first time on 10 August 2010. The title song Synrise was remixed by Mumbai Science, Housemeister, Paul Chambers and Soulwax. Jef Neve, a famous Belgian jazz pianist made a classical piano version of this song. The song "Synrise" also appeared in the Dior campaign presenting the Ready-to-Wear Fall collection 2013. The artwork for this album was made by legendary Storm Thorgerson. In January 2011 they won two (Flemish) Music Industry Awards, for best dance/electronical music and best artwork.


The third album "Control Control Control" was released on 8 April 2013 in the UK. It was recorded live in the studio, by Paul Stacey (Noel Gallagher) and Dave Sardy (Oasis, ZZ Top). It was very well received- The Guardian even described them as "onstage powerhouse, successfully bridging the gap between electronic music and rock" - and they had the chance to headline big festivals as Rock Werchter, Pukkelpop and I Love Techno. For this festival they could even host a whole room. The line-up for this room was filled with friends of them like The Bloody Beetroots, Digitalism, Gesaffelstein, Annie Mac and DJ Falcon.

Their fourth album is called What You Need and was released on April 4, 2016.
