The Growlers: “City Club”

Posted by on Oct 13, 2017

This week, the Song of the Day features ACL Fest 2017 artists.

The Growlers are grittier than their SoCal place of birth would suggest. While a lot of their California compadres opt for sunshine, the Growlers head for the shade. It’s no wonder Julian Casablancas produced their fifth album, last year’s City Club. The Growlers have a little Strokes in their DNA, crafting garage rock with a modern bounce.

The band also hosts its own annual music festival, but this weekend they’re gracing ours. “City Club” is a perfect entrance into the Growlers’ own peculiar club, built around a funky riff and singer Brooks Nielsen’s sinister croon.

“City Club” appears on City Club, out now.
