Wolf Alice Videos
Calling all '90s kids: The new trippy-go-lucky video from London alt rockers Wolf Alice will make you long for your old Doc Martens and faded band tees. Just check out "Freazy"'s hyper coloring, the same palette often used in vids back in the day, or its dreamy synths, recalling the likes of shoegazers Cocteau Twins or Lush. Tethered to some spritely hooks as well as the buoyant vocals of Ellie Rowsell, the song cozies right up to the '90s style of bands like the Sundays or Innocence Mission.
The video, which finds the band enjoying a day in the woods, along with some psychedelic mushrooms they find there, was conceived and produced with filmmaking collective, Youth Hymns.
Though the song tips its hat to the vibes of another era, make no mistake that the band, filled out by Joff Oddie, Joel Amey, and Theo Ellis, is decidedly from the here and now; its debut album, My Love Is Cool, dropped earlier this year via Dirty Hit/RCA Records, and helped shortlist the group on Rolling Stone's recent list, 10 New Artists You Need to Know. The band is about to hit the road in support of it, too. Dates down below.
