Self-describing their music as “Beach Goth”, sunburned & salty, the term perfectly describes their distinctive melding of reverb heavy surf guitar & Bakersfield-style honky tonk with ‘80s post-punk.

'Chinese Fountain', their 4th long-player, is their most confident album to date. “The band played better than they’ve ever played,” says Brooks Nielsen. “We’ve got the process down now. There’s less screwing around to get the songs laid out & we weren’t waiting around for take after take. We knew it & we played without much time to spare.” "A polish & focus defines the still-hard-to-pinpoint Growlers’ sound & everything from disco-punk to reggae-flavoured songs land with both force & melodic buoyancy" 7.5/10 - paste.
