The shimmering layered vocals, sparkling synths and elegant tones will warm your senses like an ambient bubble-bath on Howlite’s new single, ‘Gothic Romance’.

Howlite emerged onto the scene in 2016 with their debut EP ‘Reasons’, with tracks added to Triple J Unearthed rotation and featured playlists as well as hailed as 4ZZZ’s Best New Arrivals at the time of its release.

Howlite have grabbed listeners attention again, producing another sublime song that captures their enchanting energy.

The group's lead singer, Alison, shares her all-time favourite female vocalists ahead of the band's next Melbourne show (The Workers Club 25 June).

Stevie Nicks

A role model for teenage witches everywhere, myself included. There is conviction in everything she sings. She oozes femininity. There is no one like her.

Nina Simone

The queen. Such a beautiful, rich voice and a striking, powerful lady. She took no shit.

Patti Smith

Patti is iconic as an artist, a woman and a musician. I was lucky enough to see her play earlier this year and even at 70y there is a strength and truth in her voice which can silence an entire room.

Joanna Newsom

Divisive. People either love her or hate her. I think that’s what I like most about her. She’s very uncompromising in her craft, which takes a lot of determination and self belief. Her voice is so expressive and so crucial to her art.

Florence Welch

Florence (of Florence and the Machine) is great; she really boosted the movement of strong female vocalists pushing through in the mid 2000s. I like the spiritual, cathartic approach she has to singing; to see her perform is like watching an emotional exorcism.
