California band The Growlers
are a really fun, quirky act, both sonically and visually. Once being labeled as "beach goth," they combine several different genres, like rock, pop, and maybe even a little western twang. A song that's been on repeat in my music library is one of their newest singles, "I'll Be Around," off of their 2016 album, City Club.
On this album, they took their dirty rock sound and transformed it into something bigger, entering a whole new world of bouncy synths and slinky electronics.
On "I'll Be Around," though, they still keep their punk vibe. The entire chorus is a call-and-response and singer Brooks Nielsen delivers his lines with such effortless, rock 'n' roll attitude. Hearing the carefree tone in his raspy voice over catchy, Neon Indian-esque synths is bound to have you feeling mesmerized.
