Scowl’s “Psychic Dance Routine” EP Set For April Release, “Opening Night” Music Video Debuts


April 07th has been set as the release date for a new EP from Santa Cruz, CA-based hardcore punk band Scowl. The outfit recorded that 5-song affair with producer/mixer Will Yip (Turnstile, Code Orange) and will have it out via Flatspot Records. The song “Opening Night” has just been unveiled as the lead single from that effort and a video for it directed by guitarist Malachi Greene is now streaming below.

Vocalist Kat Moss commented of this introduction to the EP:

“‘Opening Night‘ is a song I’m particularly excited about because I really worked on this song’s structure with the boys in the band. I felt inspired by early 2000’s indie rock songs written by bands like The Strokes and Vampire Weekend.

Lyrically this song takes a pretty literal stab at my experience of feeling jolted from stage to van, and back again, every single night. I also had experiences on tour where I was seeing faces in the crowd that belonged to people from my past, and it was pretty shocking.”
