“Howler are a bit of a Vaccines-Drums-Strokes hybrid with hints of summer sun and LA 60s pop alongside their down'n'dirty NYC rattle and strum. Unequal parts Spector and CBGBs, they call what they do surf-thrash, while elsewhere they've been described as "sun-kissed garage rock". As lanky but cute front boy Jordan Gatesmith, who's a punky-indie Justin Bieber and used to be in a band called Total Babe, has been keen to remind everyone, Howler are from Minneapolis, home of the Replacements and Hüsker Dü, while also pointing towards the Ronettes and Shangri-Las albums in his collection.” Paul Lester (The Guardian July 2011)
