the famously prolific band deliver another set of their distinctive brand of warped, yet highly melodic, pop songs.

opener ‘dogheart ii’ encapsulates the growlers world perfectly, incorporating jangly surf guitars, a ramshackle skiffle shuffle, elements of psychedelia & garage rock production, while featuring a typically captivating vocal performance from brooks nielsen extolling the virtues of younger women, signing off each chorus with trademark humour; “take it from a dirty young man”. elsewhere, ‘humdrum blues’ is one of the boldest & most direct pop songs the growlers have yet written & also one of the most heartfelt. as the title of the ep suggests, the growlers are a difficult band to pin down, but that’s just what makes them so enchanting.
