PREVIEW: Wolf Alice @ Concorde 2, 09/04/15

Fresh from their US tour supporting Alt-J, Wolf Alice have been cooking up a storm and are on the cusp of selling out their entire UK tour. If this edgy rock quartet haven’t appeared on your radar yet, then it really is time you tuned in.

Their greatly acclaimed CREATURE SONGS EP released on Dirty Hit Records is a feast of huge, punchy songs. With rich vocals, melodic, gritty guitar, dramatic lifts in dynamic, this is a band with their own distinctive sound. Although one that would complement the impeccable tones of 21st Century Rock Sisters HAIM.

Last year Wolf Alice packed festival slots at Glastonbury, Reading & Leeds and Bestival, amongst many other festival appearances, all cumulating in the band being named on the long list for the BBC Sound of 2015 and winning Best Breakthrough Artist at the recent UK Festival Awards.

Could this be an up and coming music movement heading our way? We feel like the scene could do with this kind of cosmic shift in the energies.

They will be performing at Concorde 2, Thursday 9th April. Doors open at 7.30pm. Tickets are SOLD OUT so get begging, stealing and borrowing. If you’ve been crafty enough to get your hands on one, we’ll see you there.

If you still haven’t got your greasy mitts on a ticket then you can catch up with the rest of the band’s UK tour.

Their Debut album ‘My Love Is Cool’ – out 22nd June 2015. Pre-order now.
