San Francisco’s Growwler is one of the few high-school bands that survived the inevitable post-graduation breakup and scattering of members, and it’s a good thing they did. Having just returned to the Bay Area from Eugene, Oregon, Growwler is set to release an EP and video over the next couple of months. For now, check out “Burnt Sienna Brown” off their latest EP, led by front-man Davis IL’s loud and twang-infused vocals. Is it country, chamber pop, southern rock, or something else? Who cares? Just enjoy it – the track is a great introduction to a band that I’m glad is back in the Bay.
Update: Growwler sent over video of the band’s live take on the track “Station Talkin” at Eugene’s W.O.W. Hall, a former Woodmen of the World lodge that is listed on the National Register of Historic Places, recorded when they opened for Tumbleweed Wanderers there last November 16th. Check it out:
