There is plenty of conjecture as to what changes a band: popularity, experience, environment, age or just time itself. While speculators can never definitively pinpoint the cause of change, I can say one thing for certain. The Wolf Alice I witnessed at The Mayan last night were not the Wolf Alice I remember from their first 2015 U.S. shows.

I’m just going to say it — “Heavenward” is the song I hope will be played at my funeral. That may sound morbid (which I am), but this song captures the perfect balance of celebration and hope that is lacking in most tribute songs for passed loved ones.

Between my obsession with The 1975, my infatuation with Wolf Alice and my fascination with The Japanese House, I’m basically Dirty Hit Records’ bitch. I trust my eardrums almost entirely to Jamie Oborne.
So when one of the record label’s newest signees, Pale Waves, released their first single “There’s a Honey,” it was honestly no surprise to me that I ended up having it on repeat for three days.

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.

If there’s one thing you should know about Wolf Alice, it’s to never put them in a box. Their Grammy nominated debut album “My Love Is Cool” bounded between pacifistic indie-folk to turbulent grunge from track to track. If “Moaning Lisa Smile” was their ode to grunge revival, “Yuk Foo” is their jab into riot grrrl punk… except with boys, too. Continue reading “Wolf Alice’s ‘Yuk Foo’ Takes No Prisoners | Song Review”
The returning trends of Doc Martens, choker necklaces, oversized flannels and crop tops have us wondering what decade it is — but fashion isn’t the only area that ’90s grunge is making a comeback.
Grunge is experiencing a resurgence in music as well, but not in the way you might think. For a male-dominated genre known as the “Seattle Sound,” you wouldn’t expect a female-fronted British band to take on grunge’s revival. Enter Wolf Alice.
