The Verse’s Dominic Courtney previews Wolf Alice ahead of their show at Brighton Dome on the 20th November 2017.
Wolf Alice has always been on the latest trends, pushing boundaries with their unique sound. As leaders on the indie scene back in 2015, they took a short hiatus to work on their second album, Visions of a Life, whilst relocating to LA. After a tour of America, the wait is finally over and the band are back in the UK, kicking off with some small Store shows. There is an air of excitement surrounding the new album as the band slowly tease fans with lead single Yuk Foo, Beautifully Unconventional and recently released Heavenward. While these songs vary in style, they do seem to work well together. This is similar to their last album, My Love is Cool with a range of tunes from the upbeat Freazy to songs like She featured on the deluxe edition.
The songs themselves are still very exciting, with Yuk Foo being completely standalone to the bands past work, introducing a menace to their musical presence and showing the breadth of the group’s capabilities. The vivacity that Wolf Alice has been seen to exhibit in their live shows will hopefully mean that their show at Brighton Dome in November will be one to remember.
Recently describing their new album as ‘houmous’, lead singer Ellie Roswell implies that listeners will be getting down and dirty while listening to their music, perhaps even with a flatbread in hand?
