At first listen, many words could be used to describe Northern Illinois band Awe Howler. 'Alternative', 'grunge', 'explosive', 'post rock'- but I think critics across the board would settle with 'fucking fantastic.' The song 'Woe' is a single off their upcoming EP 'Commiserate', which will be released June 25th. Awe Howler has always strayed away from banal, predictable rock music. Vocally, their music ranges from soft singing to aggressive yelling. Instrumentally, the music goes from calm and intricate to heavy and powerful. We can expect nothing but pure talent from these pedal-friendly rocker's newest project. Until then, stream 'Woe' here.
