Any Twin Cities music lover still not aware who Howler is might be surprised to see a clip up on RollingStone.com today prominently featuring Minneapolis as a backdrop. The magazine's site premeired the clip for "Back of Your Neck," the first single from the young quintet's full-length debut album on Rough Trade Records. Click here to see it.
Not only does the video prominently feature the band's hometown -- the skyline, the Grain Belt sign/bridge, First Avenue's stars -- it also shows off the extra, heavier production value heard throughout the new record, titled "America Give Up" and scheduled to land Jan. 17. Two more songs off the album can also now be heard on Spotify.
Last seen at First Ave opening for Tune-Yards (footage of which also made it into the new video), the band will play a hometown release party Jan. 14 at the Triple Rock and then take on the world, starting with four different shows around New York City and then another trek across the pond to England, where the group already has a following thanks to its NME exposure.
