Howlies Causing a Blur Between Pop and Rock

I’m sitting inside The Galaxy Room in Austin listening to a band named Howlies. After speaking to their managers I thought it would be fun to stick around and hear their set as they were described as “doo-wop.” This was the first time I had heard a modern day band described as such. In theory, I would simply describe them as either alternative or pop but the doo-wop title fits them well.

Led by their drummer, all four members sing and they harmonize with the best of them. It would be cool if more bands used this style, giving an actual genre to the music. Don’t call yourselves alternative if your actually an electro pop band. Here’s to Howlies who are trying to re-introduce Austin to a long forgotten genre. Check out video of Hollies performing below the fold.
