Wolf Alice are not just another indie band’ the North London quartet make powerful waves both in studio and live. Wolf Alice will return to Australia and New Zealand this September to perform headline shows with plenty of bite!
The band’s roots go back to 2010, when vocalist Ellie Roswell and guitarist Joff Oddie came together to make tunes inflected with a mix of rock, folk, grunge and shoegaze. Joel Amey (drums) and Theo Ellis (bassist) completed the group a few years later, culminating in the release of their debut EP Blush.
Last year’s second record Visions of a Life, recorded in Los Angeles, took things to new heights on stellar tracks like the slow-burning ‘Don’t Delete The Kisses’, and ‘Beautifully Unconventional’ with its beast of a groove. Fittingly describing the album but also apt for the band’s power onstage, Rolling Stone asserted ‘The stakes are high, and the payoffs are real.’
Live is where Wolf Alice’s combination of bite and beauty is most strongly felt. The powerhouse quartet have dominated their own headline shows, supported Queens Of The Stone Age in the US, and will support both Liam Gallagher in the UK and the Foo Fighters in Europe in the coming months, before embarking on a string of northern summer festivals.
They’ve found something of another home down here, smashing Falls Festival in 2014, Splendour the following year – including a pair of rip-roaring Sydney and Melbourne sideshows – and 2018’s Laneway.
