#8. Wolf Alice
One of the more interesting bands to surface over the last couple of years are the North London rockers Wolf Alice.
After a slew of singles, the group finally released their full-length debut My Love Is Cool last summer.
I had the opportunity of seeing the band perform last May prior to the album’s arrival. It was one of those fun intimate shows at the Soda Bar in San Diego. I had the pleasure of shooting the shit with the four-piece after the show.
I’ll probably never have the chance to see them in such a tiny venue ever again, however, I’m still looking forward to their big stage Coachella performance. It should be the highlight of the day on Sunday, as long as Goldenvoice gives them more than 25 minutes.
This blog named the album My Love Is Cool as the #3 best album of 2015. Three songs from the album made my Top 101 Tracks Of 2015 list. “Giant Peach” came in at #81, “Freazy” #42, and “Bros” was my #10. If you get a spare 7 hours and 4 minutes, you can listen to all 101 tunes over on the Spotify.
Wolf Alice never received the warm and fuzzy from North America’s Indie Rock Channel, Sirius XMU. Over on Alt Nation the band has been in heavy rotation. Not sure why, except that it gives XMU more time to play more Grimes.
