ACT NAME: Howls
GENRE: Punk, Alternative, Indie
HOME TOWN: Brighton
MUSICAL FAMILY TREE: Pissed Jeans, The Bronx, Single Mothers
WHY CARE: Since their inception in 2014, this three-piece have taken their frantic blend of punk and hardcore all over the UK, sharing stages with the likes of Bastions, Palm Reader, and Employed To Serve. Whilst their roots lie in aggressive music, the band have challenged themselves to evolve, eager to take a step away from familiar surroundings in order to create something honest and true to their influences. Their debut album “The Headache” (out now on Truthseeker Music) is the result; a full-length that sees the band embracing more experimental and melodic sounds, whilst still delivering the huge party-punk riffs that they are known for.
KILLER TRACK: “Small Talk”
