Upon the conclusion of their U.S. tour, going into their small venue U.K. tour, Wolf Alice is getting intimate in more than just their concert gigs. The four-piece recently released the amorous music video for their most unabashed love song, “Don’t Delete the Kisses.”
While LANY is arguably referred to as an alternative band, one thing is for sure — they are the epitomical sound of the millennial generation. From their lyricism to their composition to their song titles, this synth-laden album checks all the boxes for mass appeal to teens and 20-somethings.
Balance and Composure has always been one of those bands that has been on my radar, although never the subject of my sole attention. I had been reading several reviews about their newest album and how divisive it was, so when I was offered the opportunity to do a live review for The Poly Post, I couldn’t turn it down.
Balance and Composure played to a sometimes raucous, sometimes subdued crowd at The Glass House in Pomona on Wednesday in support of their third album, “Light We Made.”
The band’s departure from their punk/post-hardcore roots, trading in distorted guitars for more polished vocals, has created a divide in their sound and their fan base.
Members of the audience were a mix of angsty and indie rockers distinctive of Balance and Composure’s old and new phases, which made for a volatile blend.
