Falling into fall with The Howler

Falling into fall with The Howler

To keep up with the annual tradition, I made one last Howler Fall Playlist before departing from staff and move onto college.  Fall music is meaningful with powerful vocals–it’s the kind of music that someone would listen to while driving down a two-lane road with trees on both sides, the leaves changing to auburn and gold hues.  All of our fall playlists can be found on Spotify, thehowlerplaylist, and are perfect to drift into fall with.    

1. All the Pretty Girls/ Kaleo

“Takes its toll my foolish pride/ How long before I see the light/ I have waited, I have waited/ For you to lay me down.”
