DEAN has released his latest single ‘Howlin’ 404’. The track was co-written/produced by DEAN himself and you.will.knovv members.
No Identity, RE:ONE, marldn, and 2xxx! featured as a composer/arranger. Another member of you.will.knovv, TABBER also added his voice in the chorus at the later part of the song and enriched the depth of the song.
The title of the song contains several meanings. ‘Howlin’’ represents a wolf, loneliness, and blusterous tornado while ‘404’ stand for error and robotic model name. It depicts a bad trip and an unescapable loop of desperate struggles to escape systems of modern industrial society. The dark, dystopian mood of the song with slight taste of oriental instruments suggests a drastic change in DEAN’s genre – alternative.
