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.
