Yowler Offers Soft Melodies on Latest Release


Philadelphia’s Yowler is definitely an artist to keep an eye on. With her lovely release this year, Black Dog In My Path she brought her warm tones and tender sounds to all her embraced her music. There’s something so tender about this album that anyone who hears it should get stopped in their movement to just take it all in.

While the record offers tenderness, there’s also plenty of indie rock guitar tons that trickle about, as well as some experimental approaches. Where the first three songs have this sweetness to their sound, “Where Is My Light?” has this gurgled guitar that has drone notes, and reminds you of nineties fuzz rock. “WTFK” also treads new spaces with it’s almost electronic sound, showcasing that Yowler can really do what they want and things still have their core sound intact.

But the magic lies in the tracks that head closer to the singer songwriter vibe for sure.With “Petals,” there’s a nice build up, with “Awkward,” the acoustic strums pair perfectly with the vocals. However, “No” is possibly the most intimate of these, and really offers up the most enduring and endearing sounding song of the album. Whatever the instrumentation is, Yowler offers some of the more intriguing sounds of the year here, and it makes the listener reflect and hunger for more.

You can stream Black Dog In My Path on all streaming sites, you can purchase it in digital stores including on Bandcamp, or you can purchase it directly from Double Double Whammy Records. You can see Yowler in person on tour beginning January 09 at O’Brien’s Pub in Allston, MA and ending January 20 in New York at Rough Trade NYC.
