Scowl release new video for "Shot Down"

Scowl have shared “Shot Down,” the second track, shared off their forthcoming EP, Psychic Dance Routine, available on April 7th via Flatspot Records. Recorded and mixed by producer Will Yip (L.S. Dunes, Title Fight, Turnover), the EP finds Scowl continuing to push the boundaries of their sound and artistic presence. On “Shot Down,” punchy guitars set up the energy of the track before Kat Moss dives into visceral lyrics marked by a blend of brassy screams and pop-forward vocals.

Diving into the lyrics of “Shot Down,” Kat stated:

“This song is supposed to represent a battle between concealing your fears and vulnerability and desperately opening up about said fears. I’m expressing distaste and fury towards the fearful part of myself, “Hate you right now” is aimed at myself. “I wanna impress, impressive sound” – I’m begging to feel confident in my own work and I feel as though this song stealthily disguises those internal fears in a bubblegum hook, only to be immediately punched in the gut with fast guitars and harsh vocals.”

The Santa Cruz, CA including Kat Moss (vocals), Malachi Greene (guitar), Bailey Lupo (bass), Cole Gilbert (drums), and Mikey Bifolco (guitar).band has quickly made a name for themselves as one of the most vivid and hard-working acts in the rock world. Since the release of their debut album, How Flowers Grow, known for their reality-driven, aggressive blend of hardcore-punk, the critically-acclaimed album opened up new doors for the band, including a non-stop touring schedule.

The band is currently on tour across North America with Show Me The Body, Jesus Piece, Zulu, and TRiPP JONES. This Spring they’ll make their Coachella debut and perform at an array of festivals including Reading & Leeds Festival, Flatspot World, Bamboozle, and Sick New World.
