Wolf Alice were a clear choice for our Top Tips For 2014 list way back in 2013. Ever since their debut release they’ve been a regular part of the playlists everywhere, and a live favourite of each and every one of us.

The band took time out of their 2015 headline UK tour to pop into Amazing Radio to perform a special acoustic version of “I Saw You (In A Corridor)”.

 

Wolf Alice perform grunge-influenced ‘You’re A Germ’ as part of the Last.fm Lightship95 Series in London. The band’s debut album ‘My Love Is Cool’ will be released on 22nd June through Dirty Hit Recordings.

Wolf Alice will release their upcoming debut album ‘My Love Is Cool’ . The band recently spoke about the mix of genres on their debut album, saying “it’s 100 per cent not a grunge record” and that it “will surprise people”.

Singer Ellie Rowsell detailed the band’s experimentation on the record, which will be their first release since 2014’s ‘Creature Songs’ EP. “It’s 100 percent not a grunge record. It’s a much braver record than that,” Rowsell said. “There’s a mix of genres on it. We’re using our instruments in different ways, like Joff [Oddie] using his guitar as a synth.”

The ‘My Love Is Cool’ tracklisting is:

‘Turn To Dust’
‘Bros’
‘Your Loves Whore’
‘You’re A Germ’
‘Lisbon’

She continued: “We’ve been making sounds that don’t necessarily sound like guitar and experimenting with the way we use our voices. We’ve tried to match the emotion of the songs in how they’re performed and recorded, tried to make a sad song really feel and sound sad.”

Wolf Alice have shared their beguiling visual accompaniment to the track “Giant Peach”, and it’s got everything: bar brawling, lute solos, and the Dad from My Parents Are Aliens. Tony Gardner takes the role of a douchebag manager, who winds up hitting the bottle pretty hard (kind of). Ewen Macintosh (Keith from The Office) also makes an appearance.

Wolf Alice‘s lead vocalist Ellie Rowsell explains the surreal concept: “Here we are trying out our questionable acting skills once again. It’s almost a sequel to our video “Fluffy” and a look in to the future of Wolf Alice – featuring lots of leather, hip thrusting, murder and a very naughty manager. Special thank you to Tony Gardner for being a hero.”My Love Is Cool” will be out via Dirty Hit Records on 22nd  June. Check out the “Giant Peach”

“Giant Peach” the first song from North London rock band Wolf Alice‘s new album, “My Love Is Cool” is a reference to Roald Dahl’s famous kid’s book about an orphan named James. According to vocalist Ellie Rowsell, the track is about growing up in London, so the title could also maybe be an across-the-pond version of New York City’s “Big Apple” nickname. “It’s about a love affair with the city,” Ellie commented that  “It’s a song to dance to, but also a song to lose your shit to.”

Like any affair worth writing about, it’s a complicated one: I don’t know what keeps me here, it’s not the boy that gives me funny feels, Rowsell sings in the hushed build-up to the noisy climax, which is all squalor and sludge and shrieking. My Love Is Cool is released in the UK  June 23rd via Dirty Hit/ RCA; listen to “Giant Peach” here

During their first trip to the States in the space of a couple of months, Wolf Alice took to their first ever KCRW session, showcasing beloved cuts and new takes from a 2015 debut album.
