The Southern California-based band The Growlers creates a psych-tinged dark-wave brand of surf rock that it describes as "beach goth." With a psychedelic aesthetic combined with campy lyrics and riotous live performances complete with matching outfits, the band held a residency at the Los Angeles venue The Echo during the summer of 2009, the same year its full-length debut Are You In or Are You Out? was released. In the following years, the band began traveling across the country with its reverb-heavy rock and roll, playing major festivals and collecting a widespread group of fans along the way.
