Howl says Odell has 'no idea' they managed to blag their way in and stay the night
Up-and-coming pop singer Howl, 18, was attending the Somerset bash for the first time and got into a spot of mischief when she hooked up with Peace, who performed on the John Peel Stage on the Friday, and Birmingham band Superfood.
“On the last night I bumped into the guys from Peace and Superfood,” she recalled in an interview with The Guardian. “Somehow we blagged our way into Tom Odell’s teepee and slept there for the night. He wasn’t in there – he has no idea.”
Howl will release her debut single ‘No Strings’ on Monday (August 26) and in this week’s NME she says that she wants to use her music to describe what teenage life is actually like. “I just don’t like being bullshat,” she explains. “I don’t like people who don’t say things how they are. I’m not preaching, but I want to describe what’s going on ‘cos people my age are being lied to so much. They don’t need to be lied to any more.”
Howl performed at Wireless Festival and Latitude earlier this summer and is set to play Bestival on September 5 – where Peace and Tom Odell are also on the line-up.
