London quartet is ready to deliver one of the year's best albums with 'My Love Is Cool.'
Wolf Alice are the latest band to emerge from the UK with the power to resurrect rock 'n' roll. It's going to happen when their full-length debut My Love Is Cool hits stores on June 23 through Dirty Hit/RCA Records. The quartet—Ellie Roswell [vocals, guitar], Joel Amey [drums], Joff Oddie [guitar], and Theo Ellis [bass]—take otherworldly soundscapes, add in a dash of robust instrumentation, and top it off with expansive, entrancing vocals. At the center, Ellie steps into the spotlight as space rock's new queen. The easiest way to describe it, if you haven't heard, is if Florence Welch were fronting My Bloody Valentine. There's an artful crossroads between shoegaze, indie, alternative, and pop that gives Wolf Alice real teeth.
They left a big mark on SXSW with widespread critical acclaim, while they recently premiered another stunning sliver of the album, "Bros." The track volleys between warm, wondrous guitars and delicate harmonies from Ellie. It's the perfect gateway into the group's enigmatic world, opening wide open and welcoming the world into Wolf Alice's embrace.
Seeing Wolf Alice live though also scorches and sizzles. Their shows prove immediately memorable, bringing that sound to life vividly while packing the room with insurmountable energy. Moreover, listening to their music offers up a serious ride. It dives headfirst into emotion bolstered by fumes of guitars and unique, undeniable vocals.
Wolf Alice have all of the power and bite to become a musical phenomenon this year. Get ready to add My Love Is Cool to your year-end list right now. It's taking its spot.
