New Wolf Alice Single

Wolf Alice created swathes of online and offline coverage last year and deservedly earned the much overused phrase “breakthrough“. They will release their debut album My Love Is Cool in June.

New EP From Wolf Alice

We were big fans of Wolf Alice’s first two singles so when a promo of their latest release, a four track EP titled Blush, dropped through the letterbox we gave it a spin pretty much straight away. While the roaring, wall of sound approach remains much in evidence, the songs display a bit more subtlety and scope, even dabbling with some bruised pop sensibilities in places. … Continue reading New EP From Wolf Alice
