Minneapolis’ brand new indie-rock hopefuls Howler released their debut EP yesterday on Rough Trade Records and have released a track to celebrate. ‘I Told You Once’ is taken from their brand new EP This One’s Different and can be streamed underneath.
Despite seemingly continuing the currently popular theme of surfer-rock melodies, Howler aren’t interested in piling up layer upon layer of Brian Wilson harmonies, instead they are very much channeling the spirit of 2001 garage-rock (which rather fittingly took off 10 years ago last week with the arrival of The Strokes’ debut LP Is This It). The band have also been recently dubbed as being the American version of Blighty’s very own The Vaccines.
Have a listen to the track and tell us what you think!
