The Growlers - City Club

Pinning it down to just one would be boring.

Pinning it down to just one would be boring.

Label: Cult Records
Released: September 30th 2016
Rating: ★★★★

There was no need for The Growlers to tell the world their new album was co-produced by their label boss Julian Casablancas. It takes but a few seconds of the opening title-track to make his influence obvious, and it’s glorious. Even better, it’s only an opening salvo.

Switching between sub-genres at will, there’s a bit of Afrofunk, a touch of disco and a bit of reggae on the side. Pinning it down to just one would be boring. “The Growlers may be the most interesting band in the world,” Casablancas muses, “certainly one of the coolest. Not gypsy, nor goth, nor surfer, nor punk, yet somehow all of them.” He should write the reviews too. Stephen Ackroyd
