Two of our favourite UK bands on one beautiful Summer’s evening? Oh, go on then.
We cannot wait for YOWL and Peeping Drexels to make their RMH debut performances on August 28th! An extraordinary double-headline show to make up for lost time…
“YOWL take the mundane and make it sound like a never-ending thrill” – NME
YOWL are Gabriel Byrde (vocals), Ivor Manley (guitar), Mike Wride (guitar), Billy Morris (bass) and Tom Flynn (drums). 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. They have spent the last year entrenching their reputation as a band able to cast a menacing shadow on record and on stage. 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 Picthfork Avant Garde and London Calling Amsterdam.
Peeping Drexels were born from the bog of South London in 2016 and have been Relentlessly playing racous gigs across the UK since then. After a period of self-exile and sound reinvention, Peeping Drexels have been reborn as an entirely new creature, releasing their first chapter – the ‘Bad Time’ EP to critical acclaim in May 2021.‘
“Yowl are a band who make Peckham sound like New York City 2002” – Loud & Quiet
“Peeping Drexels’ brutalist take on punk-etched indie recalls everyone from Mark E Smith to The Cramps” – CLASH
