"Some bands just ooze cool. The proudly independent LA band The Growlers serves up an infectious combo of new wave, disco and indie rock in Natural Affair." 

LISTEN & SHARE: 
The Growlers - Natural Affair LP



Self-producing the album, The Growlers worked with Topanga Canyon friend Kyle Mullarky (Allah-Las, Little Wings) to craft early versions of the songs, then with engineer Ivan Wayman (Father John Misty, The War on Drugs) and mixer Dave Cerminara (HEALTH, Weyes Blood) to bring a new level of polish and continuity.  The backing band delivers time and again, courtesy of longtime Growlers touring members Brad Bowers on bass and Richard Gowen (Jonathan Wilson, Nick Waterhouse) on drums, with support from synth wizard Adam MacDougall and veteran bassist Dan Horne, both of psych supergroup Circles Around the Sun. "We have a new respect for professional players," says Nielsen. "At first we always wanted to have homegrown and kinda shitty players, but now we see how the pros can take the songs to a new place." 
 arguably delivering The Growlers' most mature, thoughtful, and truly human release yet

About The Growlers
Led by singer Brooks Nielsen and music director/guitarist Matt Taylor, The Growlers have forged their own twisted path on the global music scene since their founding in 2006 in Dana Point, California. They're the party band that grew into a traveling circus, spawning their own annual event (Beach Goth) and growing an international fanbase, while releasing six studio records that trace a line from garage psych ballads to edgy radio pop. On their first three records - Are You In Or Out? (2009), Hot Tropics (2010), and Hung at Heart (2013) - The Growlers combined reverb-rich waves of vintage surf rock with the dark, slow-burn melancholy of outlaw country. Chinese Fountain (2014) introduced a new, disco-infused direction that saw them move away from their swampy roots and relocate to Los Angeles. 

The band teamed up with producer Julian Casablancas (and frontman of The Strokes) to make City Club (2016), their breakthrough hit album that led to world tours (and even a live appearance on Ellen). 2018 brought Casual Acquaintances, a raw collection of City Club-era demos and outtakes that - even as b-sides - ranks with the band's finest material. Between records they toured constantly, raising their status as icons of the Los Angeles music underground, capable of drawing arena-sized crowds for their hometown shows. On their latest, self-produced record Natural Affair (2019), The Growlers deliver their finest songwriting, warmest sounds, and most memorable lyrics for an epic, timeless affair.
