Like a lucid Shane MacGowan fronting a frazzled house band, Yowl are a South London based 5 piece of menacing-indie storytellers, swinging from intense proto-punk to swooning balladry. Their debut album Milksick is released on Clue Records / EMI North.


Born from the grit and gristle of South London, the record is both a curdled, anxiety-riddled reaction and a bitter antidote to our times. Tearing through several iterations, birthing and destroying characters and concept-driven rabbit holes, the band liken Milksick's creation in Leeds' Nave Studios as something they "chipped away at, like a slab of ugly rock that became a handsome statue." The band returned to producer and grounding presence Alex Greaves, producer for BDRMM and Working Mens Club. Encapsulating the spirit of the record, the band say: "Milksick is a collection of outlandish cautionary tales, uneasy odes to imaginary characters and late night pedal-fuckery, all tied together by a thread of eco-anxiety and that mildly bitter, self-effacing outlook that has earned us our similarly disgruntled following."
