HOWLITE EXPLORE NEW SOUNDS
Already known for their meticulous development of ethereal indie-pop sounds, built on dark and brooding musical foundations, Melbourne trio Howlite have returned with a dive into a glossy atmospheric soundscape – their brand new single, ‘Reducer’. The first taste of their forthcoming EP Not Here, the song is the beginning of a new chapter for the band.
Vocalist Alison Thom remains a driving force behind the emotive punch of the song, her voice easily captivates in the same vein as Empress Of, BANKS and London Grammar’s Hannah Reid. Sonically, Howlite explore a more distinct electronic path with ‘Reducer’, swapping their folk roots for samples and throbbing bass and loops that make the realm the song sits in one that shines with music texture.
ONE OF MELBOURNE’S BEST BACK IN FINE FORM
A consistent follow up to their 2018 release ‘Orchestra’, ‘Reducer’ is Howlite at their most ambitious creative peak to date. Reflective and introspective, the song’s release comes at a time where Howlite are stepping further into a spotlight marked by confidence and a hungry curiosity for exploring dark pop instrumentation. Along with solidifying the dreamy soundscapes that have endeared them to crowds around the country.
Ready to introduce their new music to audiences on the east coast at the end of August, Howliteare primed for a fruitful tail-end of 2019. Renowned for an engaging stage presence, the ‘Reducer’-era of Howlite is one that will see the band embrace a strong new element of their band dynamic.
