Yowl are a band who make Peckham sound like New York City 2002… a little bit
Somehow the opening minute of Yowl’s latest track ‘My Headache Likes To Speak’ seems to bring it all back. That’s because Gabriel Byrde voice isn’t dissimilar to the bleak howl of Paul Banks. Or maybe it’s that guitar sound.
But then, the song takes a twist that means the Peckham band – who run their own clubnight at south London’s The Montague Arms – are a different prospect all together.
A short while ago we brought you the latest track from Bristol band LICE. That came out via the freshly set-up Big Score imprint. This new track is only their second release.
From Yowl, about their new song: “‘My Headache Likes To Speak refers to that anxiety that comes from the cocktail of social pressures and everything surrounding the need to socialise with people, fearing humiliation, and a desire for genuine connection.”
