The Growl started out as a bedroom recording project for Cameron Avery and Clinton Oliver but soon expanded into a five piece maelstrom of noise including two drummers. In December 2012 the band used an old attic in Perth’s CBD as a makeshift studio. The big old rooms, wooden floors and crumbling metal ceiling had the perfect atmosphere to record their debut album. Filthy guitars, stoner lyrics and a sly, shifting rhythm give The Growl's debut single a Morphine-grade gravitas. This is heavy stuff, grimy, sexy, confident blues rock that will leave the taste of iron on your tongue. 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. The Growl have a sound that’s a little hard to ignore. They already have one EP out, called Cleaver Leaver.
