MP3 of the Day #875 (and more!): Wolf Alice

By on Tuesday, 24th March 2015 at 10:00 am

Wolf Alice appeared last week in Austin for SXSW 2015 and as previously announced on TGTF, their new spring 2015 UK tour just began yesterday in Glasgow.

It seems, then, with the excitement of a new tour beginning, it’s perfect timing for a free mp3 giveaway. ‘I Saw You (in a Corridor)’ is the b-side of their upcoming single ‘Giant Peach’, which will be released on limited edition 7″ vinyl on the 13th of April. You can listen to the b-side and from the Soundcloud embed below, and if you like it, you can download it from this link. The video for ‘Giant Peach is also embedded under its b-side’s stream.

Previous coverage of Wolf Alice on TGTF is this way.

In the Post #125: ‘Moaning Lisa Smile’ from Wolf Alice’s forthcoming EP ‘Creature Songs’

By on Friday, 16th May 2014 at 12:00 pm

The new track ‘Moaning Lisa Smile’ from Wolf Alice rings with energy. This four piece outfit hailing from London has captured the attention of many, garnering Radio 1 airplay with their crushing guitars yet surprisingly delicate vocals from lead singer Ellie Rowsell.

Starting with a deceptive acoustic line, ‘Moaning Lisa Smile’ changes 10 seconds in with a crashing assault on the ear. The simple acoustic line is carried through the noise and cleverly lifts the entire song with its melody keeping a lightness to it, despite the dark lyrics and heavy overlay of noisy guitars on top. They pack an exciting bit of unknown into that explosive 2 and a half minutes. The soft start of this tune that then opens into a nice hard edge on the interior coupled with the non sequitur, oft indecipherable lyrics harken back to my particular favourite, old style Biffy Clyro. If this is the direction the band choses to follow, they will continue to have a great champion in me.

The new Wolf Alice EP ‘Creature Songs’ will be with us on the 26th of May from Dirty Hit Records. Wolf Alice is on tour throughout the UK now, check out their tour dates here. Below is a video released earlier this month of the band performing the song live in session.
