Following some joyful festival appearances across the summer and a few gigs in their native South London one of our favourite bands of the moment YOWL have announce a proper UK tour. AAAnd they’ve bloody well shared the video for ‘My Headache Likes To Speak’.
The video is directed by Holly Whitaker and sees band at The Old Nun’s Head as the visuals tell the story of a night gone wrong. Very wrong. Usual fodder for YOWL so expect a twisted viewpoint expertly crafted and portrayed along some razor-gilded strings and a social commentary to make Pepys squirm.
Of the song, the band say “‘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.”
