new artist of the week
This London four-piece like their rock music. Featuring songs that move from 90s-sounding indie to synth-wave to grungey rock, Wolf Alice have become one of the hottest new bands coming out of the UK.
It helps that their songs so far, Bros, Bliss, Every Cloud and She all have a grounding in pop melodies.
Last month at South By Southwest, the music industry showcase festival in Texas, the band picked up lots of positive international buzz.
Off the back of that, the band will release their second EP, Creature Songs, in May. The lead track Moaning Lisa Smile will please fans of rollicking grunge-rock. It's pleasingly old-school, like an invigorating slap in the face from a nostalgic 90s teenager.
You can be on the receiving end of that aural slap in person when the band plays the Longitude Festival on Saturday, July 20.
