Wolf Alice - FUV Live - 2015

by Kara Manning

At Wolf Alice's gig at Mercury Lounge in late January, the venue was jam-packed for this canny north London quartet with a knack for songs that teeter between stormy lashings and tender idylls. On the basis of two very impressive EPs released over the last two years, Blush (2013) and Creature Songs (2014), Wolf Alice has made ambitious strides, graduating from tiny Camden Town club gigs to behemoth festivals like Glastonbury. They were tapped for the BBC's Sound of 2015 longlist and on the very morning of the Mercury Lounge show, the group signed a major label deal in the States. Wolf Alice's debut album, My Love Is Cool, will be released on June 23 via Dirty Hit/RCA.

The album, produced by T-Bone Burnett, offers a feminist perspective of the American roots canon with lyrical and sonic influences spanning from Nina Simone to Patsy Cline.
