Like a lucid Shan MacGowan fronting a frazzled house band, YOWL are a South London 5 piece of meancing-indie storytellers, swinging from intense proto-punk to swooning balladry. The band have been supported by DIY, NME, Radio 1, 6Music, Apple Music’s Beats 1, CLASH and more as well as playing festivals and showcases across Europe including Pitchfork Avant-Garde, Amsterdam’s London Calling and All Points East.
They formed in 2016 when they put forward their manifesto on the EP ‘Before the Sleep Sets In’, which demonstrated a potent ability to channel frustration with mid-city living into a churning marriage of sleazy indie and post-punk. The band were named in DIY’s ‘Class Of 2019’, have been supported by NME, Loud & Quiet, BBC Radio 6Music and have played alongside IDLES and LICE as well as festivals including Pitchfork Avant Garde and London Calling Amsterdam.
YOWL are Gabriel Byrde (vocals), Mike Wride (guitar), Billy Morris (bass), James Beck (guitar) and Tom Flynn (drums).
