Today, I’m featuring a song from one of my favorite new(ish) bands, Wolf Alice. Hailing from London, England, members Ellie Rowsell, Theo Ellis, Joel Amey, and Joff Oddie have a sound that seamlessly blends rock, pop, folk, and other genres. I discovered Wolf Alice’s music in late 2013 when “Fluffy” played on my “Hole” Pandora station. I liked what I heard, but after hearing the Blush EP, I was 100% sold.
Wolf Alice has excellent music videos, making it extremely tough to pick just one, but I’ve chosen “Giant Peach” from their debut album, My Love is Cool, released in June. It’s one of the band’s more lighthearted videos, and I love that it sort of pokes fun at the stereotypical “rock star” persona. The video shows the band drinking heavily, reluctantly signing autographs, fighting, and getting revenge on their manager. It all ends with a dramatic music video shoot… and an epic breakdown around 3:50.
