Bio

"Filthy guitars, stoner lyrics and a sly, shifting rhythm give The Growl's debut single a Morphine-grade gravitas. This is heavy stuff from the new Perth four-piece, grimy, sexy, confident blues rock that will leave the taste of iron on your tongue. Nice." - Beat Magazine "The quartet have a solid grip on the gritty, dark and sultry sort of blues that inks the images from their foreboding tales into the listener's mind." - Drum Media "The Growl have a sound that’s a little hard to ignore – their debut single, Smoke It Down, has a bass line so raw and relentless it hits you in the face and imprints itself on the back of your brain, reverberating long after the song has finished." - deathclouds.com

Cam Avery has nailed this vocal and I love the way he hangs on some of these notes. It's a little Mark Lanegan, though not as deep in pitch. Good work guys. You've put a spell on me again with this one.

In a dirty, dank and dark bar in the middle of nowhere, someone is listening to this song and plotting their revenge against society.
