New Wolf Alice Single

Posted: February 25, 2015 in Alternative, Electronic, Indie, Music, Rock
Tags:

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.

In the meantime we have a new single, Giant Peach, that emphasises even further their predilection for a hypnotic motorik groove, whilst singer Ellie Rowsell is at her snapping, snarling best.

New From Wolf Alice

The hotly tipped London four piece Wolf Alice have announced details of their new EP, Creature Songs, which will be released on the 26th May through Dirty Hit Records.

While we’ve enjoyed previous releases, this EP looks, and sounds, like a big step forward, especially lead track, Moaning Lisa Smile, which opens the EP and showcases the band at their most powerful. It is a snarling single of skyscraping proportions that’s quickly become a fan favourite at the band’s live shows.

Storms meanwhile is attention stealing in its blistering wall of noise opening, as ever complimented by the dynamic beauty of Ellie Rowsell’s chameleon vocal.

Check out both. Pre-order here.

The Gathering - A Playlist

This weekend sees the annual Gathering festival in Oxford – a brilliant event that takes in seven venues around the city and runs from the afternoon into the wee small hours.

This year the line up includes such MM luminaries as Local Natives, Drenge, Waxahatchee, Temples, Charlie Boyer & The Voyeurs, Pyyramids, Port Isla, Wolf Alice, To Kill A King, Cheatahs and a whole host more.

For a very reasonable £25 you get a wristband that gives you entry into all the events and venues and you just pick and choose whatever takes your fancy. Tickets are almost all gone, but you may be able to snap up one of the last few by clicking here.

If not, console yourself with this rather good playlist of tunes…

Videos of the Day

Videos to enjoy today from Public Service Broadcasting, The Visibles, Whales In Cubicles and Wolf Alice.

Public Service Broadcasting’s Night Mail takes its subject matter from the eponymous film of 1936, a pioneering documentary film produced by the General Post Office and the Royal Mail Group. Setting the original words of the documentary – including the much loved Night Mail poem – to a song that evokes the rhythm, speed and excitement of the railway in the era of the steam train.

Psychedelic images paired with nostalgia, or as San Francisco’s The Visibles like to jokingly call it “Nostalgiadelic“, was the inspiration behind their new self-made video for Marigolds – their latest single of psych influenced retro pop.

We also have the video for Whales In Cubicles new single Wax & Feathers and lastly for today, we have Wolf Alice’s video for She – the first of two of a continuing narrative, with a second video set for release in the very near future. Mimicking the track’s tumultuous, turbulent dynamics, the narrative follows a volatile young man as he lustfully and lovingly pursues his latest acquaintance. But as he is rapidly saturated in her life, it quickly becomes clear that his intentions are not as straightforward as they seem…

New EP From Wolf Alice

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. But it is the sprawling, epic onslaught of She that stands out as a serious statement of intent – it is a step up and, even more than before, marks this four-piece out as genuine contenders for the big league!

Pre-order the EP here.

New Single From Wolf Alice

After the success of their last single, Fluffy, North London’s Wolf Alice are starting to create quite a name for themselves.

The buzz looks set to continue with the release of their new single on the 20th May, titled Bros. An ode to childhood friendships and already a big live favourite, we think you’re going to like this one.

Have a listen…
