Sant Cruz, CA band Scowl have recently released their highly-anticipated EP, Psychic Dance Routine, out today on Flatspot Records. On Psychic Dance Routine, Scowl push the boundaries of their sound and artistic presence, ranging from hardcore to alternative rock with moments of pop and indie. As the band puts it, “it’s like Negative Approach meets The Breeders.”
As Moss states; “I chose to revolve the main theme around performance. This is both literal and figurative, as the band has been on tour practically all of 2022. My perspective of being consumed as the version of myself that is ‘performing’ has shifted dramatically, while simultaneously grappling with the experience of being a feminine artist in a world that doesn’t always take you seriously.”
With Psychic Dance Routine Scowl has exemplified their ethos of being true to themselves through creating innovative song structures and personable lyrics. Their ability to be genre fluid intersects with their up for anything attitude. It’s all just part of the plan for the ever-evolving band that is Scowl.
The band just wrapped up a sold out tour across the United States and Canada with Show Me The Body, Jesus Piece, Zulu, and TRiPP JONES. They are currently in New York for EP release shows at Rough Trade NYC and Flatspot World, and will then set to the desert to perform at Coachella. Showing absolutely no signs of slowing down, the band has a UK tour set to start in late April, will head to Australia for the first time in late May for shows with Speed and Sunami, a California tour with Circle Jerks in July, and festival performances across the globe. Appearances include Reading and Leeds, Sick New World, Back On The Map, Outbreak, Sonic Blast, Furnace Fest, and more.
