HOWARDIAN - "Different Dogs"

HOWARDIAN is an art-pop collective out of Olympia, WA fronted by Ian Vanek (Japanther). Supporting musicians of the act include Scott Brummel, Justin Mckaughan, Gardner Allen, Farley Glavin, Mustafa Daka, Schuyler Maehl, and Flo Amarino. Today we bring to you their new video for "Different Dogs" which will be on their upcoming record The Silly Shit You Say. The full album will be available this Friday, March 15, 2019 on Starcleaner Records and Let's Pretend Records

I suggest listening to this track when on the go... even better when you are with friends on the road, in the woods, on the bus, wherever you go. HOWARDIAN has put together a catchy, atmospheric garage pop tune right here. Riding steadily on a solid drum beat, everything else just falls into place. Right above the drumming on "Different Dogs" we have warm, channeling synth, delicate guitar tones, clever lyrics, and echoing supporting vocals that create a sense of optimism and appreciation for what one may already have in their life.

The video follows two friends adventuring through the outdoors. There is a nostalgic VHS glaze over the whole thing that complements the track nicely. Kooky masks and slight absurdity also make an appearance. I was for it. The video was directed by Kurt Buchmeier out of Chicago, IL. Enjoy this stream of "Different Dogs" below. 

"Lets see what we can see"... I am really looking forward to hearing what else is on deck for HOWARDIAN. Spin their new record this coming weekend!
