8:35pm - 9:05pm (Saturday)
Nobody’s happy putting up with poor job prospects and a city pricing out the poorest, but the Peckham-formed YOWL capture a frustration of the 9-to-5 London grind like few others. And in frontman Gabriel Byrde, they have someone who can spin poetry on songs about alienation and exhaustion. YOWL are often viciously loud, but Byrde’s fanciful delivery gives them an edge.
Based in South-East London, YOWL consists of Gabriel Byrde (vocals), Ivor Manley (guitar), Mike Wride (guitar), Jake Manley (bass) and Tom Flynn (drums).
