They ain't afraid of no massive summer blockbuster soundtrack.

With ‘My Love Is Cool’, Wolf Alice proved themselves as a cut above the rest of their class. It wasn’t just the music - as great as it was - but something less tangible and infinitely more rare. More than simply a band, they had the magic too. Magic that drove them within a broken rock-star leg of a Number 1 album, saw them explode across the airwaves and start the ascent to the biggest of big leagues.

With every step made so perfectly, where they go next is the hardest of all. That’s where ‘Ghoster’ comes in. While offerings to summer soundtracks of major Hollywood blockbusters shouldn’t be the measuring stick of much at all, at the very least it’s a (not so) calming tonic. Their contribution to a Ghosbusters OST that has some, let’s say, divisive moments isn’t a bending to the will of guided execs, but proof their DNA can’t be broken.

Like everything Wolf Alice do, there’s a sense of history. Their link to the 90s stays strong - ‘Ghoster’ recalling everything from Garbage to Republica, L7 and even Shampoo (ask yr parents - Ed). Glitchy and snotty in the chorus, breathy and trashy in the verses, it’s unlike anything from ‘My Love Is Cool’, and yet makes perfect sense too. An evolution of sound but a continuation of spirit, whatever comes next, Wolf Alice have nothing to be afraid of. Stephen Ackroyd
