01/29/2012 Video: Howler- Back Of Your Neck
Following in the cigarette-smoking, sunglasses wearing legacy of bands like Smith Westerns and The Strokes, Howler have possibly the one of the catchiest songs of 2012 with their track ‘Back Of Your Neck’. From the opening guitar licks to the instant classic ‘ewww weee ewww’ chorus, ‘Back Of Your Neck’ has everything that a lo-fi/garage-rock band could dream of writing. Of course it only helps that the detached vocals Jordan Gatesmith come off as genuine where it could have easily been Julian Casablancas mimicry. The video may also remind you of this or this.
