Photo Diary: Go behind the scenes of Howlite's new single, Gothic Romance
Frontwoman Alison Thom guides us through her time at Laneway Studios.
Howlite emerged onto the scene in 2016 with their debut EP Reasons, a fantastic that saw plenty of chart love and radio play, and they're ready to back up that strong beginning with new single, Gothic Romance. A haunting, though gentle affair, the devil is in the sparse details. Frontwoman Alison Thom sent us a few snaps from behind the scenes recording Gothic Romance, which you can read up on below, and catch them live launching Gothic Romance on Sunday 25 June (details HERE).

Being a left handed guitarist means always travelling with your gear. Being a poor left-handed guitarist means having an upside-down right handed guitar. We can’t all be Courtney Barnett.

I have a really bad habit of drawing on everything I own, including my guitar. I like drawing patterns and faces, things that require attention to detail, so that the rest of my mind can float off somewhere else.

Laying down guide vocals with Michael Badger at Laneway Studios; always my favourite part because it’s the quickest and there’s no pressure.
