The Technicolors – “Howl”: ONErpm Hitmaker Alert


The Technicolors introduce a guitar-heavy summer banger with “Howl,” the band’s latest single released on June 4th. The song has an infectious melody reminiscent of Muse and Royal Blood. “Howl” lulls you in with quiet vocals and then explodes into a crash of guitars. We’ll be spinning it all weekend as we feature the band as our ONErpm Hitmaker! 

Lead singer Brennan Smiley told DoNYC that he gets inspiration from his favorite artists, which include Oasis, Radiohead, and Sufjan Stevens. Accordingly, it makes sense that “Howl” stays true to those artists and combines edgy guitars with thoughtful lyrics. “Howl” is produced by Bob Hoag, a fellow Arizona native who is known for his time in the rock band The Ataris. The Technicolors blend swaggering rock with clever songwriting and layers of sound, making it hard to get this song out of your head.

The music video for the song is psychedelic with bucket hats and magnifying glasses galore. Check it out below!
