On April 7th, Santa Cruz unit Scowl will usher in Psychic Dance Routine — a well-rounded EP arriving via Flatspot Records that signals compositional maturity and strength for a band known for abiding by no conventions. They share a taste of their expansive musical breadth with new single Shot Down, which bridges crushing vocal aggression with upbeat alternative passages. It comes visualized by a video directed by guitarist Malachi Greene and braces audiences for what to expect upon catching the band in the live setting.

Kat Moss comments on the track:

“This song is supposed to represent a battle between concealing your fears and vulnerability and desperately opening up about said fears. I’m expressing distaste and fury towards the fearful part of myself, “Hate you right now” is aimed at myself. “I wanna impress, impressive sound” - I’m begging to feel confident in my own work and I feel as though this song stealthily disguises those internal fears in a bubblegum hook, only to be immediately punched in the gut with fast guitars and harsh vocals.”
