Self-described "beach goth" band The Growlers
released a fast-paced new video for their single "I'll Be Around" off of their latest LP City Club
. Deviating from their usual sound, this album is produced by lead singer of The Strokes, Julian Casablancas, and features more post-punk and synth-pop sounds. City Club
features songs that are much more densely produced than The Growlers' previous music. This is evident on "I'll Be Around," a song which features synth heavy production and a throwback sound. This nod to the past is mirrored in the video, which has a late 70s style, including plaid pants and feathered boas, as well as disco dance moves and conga lines. In this goofy video, frontman Brooks Nielsen arrives at a hospital where he promptly dies, only to return as a ghost ready to dance and party with his friends as well as the nurses and doctors. Cheesy special effects and cheap props give the feel of a B-movie production, but also give it the informal tone of a bunch of friends having a good time.
