There’s a reason why Wolf Alice sit at the head of the charge.
It’s hard to imagine many other bands who could pull off a song like ‘Don’t Delete The Kisses’, the second track to be lifted from Wolf Alice’s second album ‘Visions Of A Life’. It’s harder still to think of one that would use it to follow up a dirty, grunge covered stormer like lead track ‘Yuk Foo’ - but then being their own band is what makes them so special in the first place.
There’s a crystal clarity to ‘Don’t Delete The Kisses’ that cuts through the noise. With the playful invention of Grimes coupled with a running, winding spoken word verse, it’s its own tactile, organic universe, expanding out before exploding into euphoria for the chorus. With its own set of rules and its own sense of style, its effortlessly the coolest kid in school.
A band who unite those around them, making music that only they could. They could be the most important band in a generation, but then why limit them by the measuring stick of their peers? There’s a reason why Wolf Alice sit at the head of the charge. Stephen Ackroyd
