It’s been two years since Wolf Alice hit us with one of the best debut albums to have been seen in years. Their knack of hitting pop sensibilities without feeling too sticky and sweet was what endeared them so heavily to young and old, now they’re back with new track ‘Yuk Foo’ and details on their (difficult) second album Visions Of A Life.
The follow up to My Love Is Cool is going to need to be one hell of an album to make us forget the epic debut but Ellie Roswell and co. are going to give it one hell of a good try and the new track shouts that loud and proud.
“I don’t give a shit” proclaims Roswell on this fizzy and gritty punk track. The song scrapes two minutes and is furious and feisty throughout, not a dull moment from the album debut.
The album is due out in September, and if this new effort is anything to go by, it will be an uncompromising belter of a sophomore long-play, but as we’ve come to expect with Wolf Alice; never expect anything from Wolf Alice.
