Unconventional surf-rockers the Growlers are set to drop their latest album City Club at the end of the month. We’ve already heard the Julian Casablancas-produced title track, and Casablancas lends a hand again on the funky followup “I’ll Be Around.” This thing is super groovy, with some agile guitar work driving the track, surrounded by big drums, infectious melodies, and earworm harmonies on the hook. And if that didn’t draw you in, there’s a soulful synth solo on the instrumental break that will surely get you moving. There’s much more instrumental work than lyrical content, but they are slyly piercing. The album is shaping up nicely based off of the first two singles. Listen to “I’ll Be Around” below.
City Club is out 9/30 on Cult Records.
