The Song That’s Shaking Me with Howler

KEXP asks musicians, “What is your favorite song, old or new, that you can’t stop listening to lately?”

    Jordan Gatesmith (vocals/guitar): Mine’s “Appetite” by Prefab Sprout. I’m obsessed with that song. Actually, I think all of us are —

    Ian Nygaard (guitar): No, no, no — mine would be “Wood Beez” by Scritti Politti.

    Max Petrek (bass): We only like sophisti-pop, sorry.

    KEXP: That is such a total contrast from your sound! Their music is so smooth!

    Jordan: And their lyrics are so dark! That’s the thing about Prefab Sprout and Scritti Politti, their lyrics are extremely dark. All their lyrics are about desire, but the negative aspects of desire. The music’s pretty happy, but the lyrics are not happy.


Howler‘s sophomore release World of Joy is out now on Rough Trade Records.
