Howler – ‘This Ones Different’

http://youtu.be/2bWBdBMffoU

An American band signed to the iconic indie label Rough Trade, Howler are every bit the a gritty rock and roll band. With most of the industry still buzzing around the Vaccines, this band have almost falling on deaf ears despite full backing from NME. But his works to Howlers advantage as they’re music is yet to be spoilt by Nike blazer wearing 14 year olds with they’re baseball caps.

This song is the stand out from they’re debut album ‘America Give Up’. Short snappy guitars with plenty of attitude, you can tell the band have real talent. Music isn’t about industry and radio hype, enjoy this band while they’re still unspoilt!
