Californian surf-rock aficionados The Growlers are set to return to Australia over the course of November. With a haunted yet laidback sound, the group continues to stand lengths ahead of their contemporaries after a decade on the scene. Lead singer Brooks Nielsen and company proved their bleached blonde, zany sounding prowess once again on last year’s City Club LP, a record that exhibited noticeable development in the band’s sound under the production of The Strokes’ Julian Casablancas.
The Growlers’ series of East Coast shows cannot be missed by anyone looking for a gothic take on the reverb-laden surf rock we’ve come to know and love. Be sure to catch them at the dates below.
3rd November – The Zoo, Brisbane
4th November – Sol Bar, Sunshine Coast
5th November – Miama Marketta, Gold Coast
8th November – Oxford Art Factory, Sydney
12th November – 170 Russell, Melbourne
