So Easy To Adore, Wolf Alice.

So Easy To Adore, Wolf Alice.

From Theo Ellis’ guttural bass rumblings to Joff Oddie’s slippery fretwork; Ellie Rowsell’s siren-like shrill to the tastefully explicit artwork adorning Wolf Alice’s forthcoming Blush EP from whence She comes, in the same way a prurient nude torso breaks with traditional British prudence so too do the north London troop go against a guitar music to have ostensibly stagnated in newly bygone times. And as has been with their every release thus far, it’s oh “so easy” to again go all in on this one: scurrying feverishly between urbane smoulder in its earlier moments and recurrently caustic onslaughts later on (“She’s got a boyfriend in a band/ And they’ve done more than just hold hands” Rowsell snarls a minute in, arguably autobiographically disclosing the nature of she and Swim Deep’s Austin Williams’ apparent intimacy), it’s a work of breakneck infectiousness to outstrip their every previous – a composition that’s as bafflingly accomplished as it is irrefutably compelling. And it streams below in all its stark beauty…

Blush is anticipated October 7th via Chess Club Records.
