Julian Casablancas did a lot to help expand the beach goth sound of The Growlers as producer on their new LP, City Club. However, The Strokes frontman didn’t just provide services behind the boards, as he also put in a guest verse on the track “Too Many Times”.
The song itself is a synth-y slice of West Coast garage, guitars bouncing through distortion like so many rusty springs. Casablancas comes in on the second verse, and his lackadaisical delivery is so similar to The Growlers singer Brooks Nielsen that it would almost be indistinguishable if not for the slight crackle in the latter’s vocals. Take a listen below.
