Los Angeles rockers The Growlers have returned with a new dance and new wave inspired song, “Natural Affair.”

The song, the title track to their forthcoming album, was self-produced by singer Brooks Nielsen and guitarist Matt Taylor. “A lot of our songs were coming out on the darker, more sentimental side, so we decided to make something more upbeat,” says Taylor in a press release about the song. “We all took a break, watched a documentary on Spandau Ballet, and wrote this riff that sounds a bit like ‘The Groove Line’ by Heatwave. More disco and energetic, just trying to keep it funky.”

The Growlers are out on tour now through the Fall, with a stop in Philadelphia at Union Transfer on September 12th.
