After bringing chaos to Thousand Island alongside Dead Pretties last month, and a few months on from the release of their EP ‘Before The Sleep Sets In’, South London’s YOWL have shared a brand new track.
The Peckham bunch have unveiled ‘My Headache Likes To Speak’, four minutes of noir-ish rock that marries together shredding, razor-sharp guitar riffs with singer Gabriel Byrde’s unmistakable vocals. Speaking of the song in a statement, the band said: “‘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”.
In the run-up to playing The Great Escape in Brighton next weekend, YOWL will be playing a couple of shows in London. They’ll team up with Spanish rabble The Parrots for a show at Oslo on 10th May before heading off to cause carnage at The George Tavern on 12th May.
