WOLF ALICE – Third Album ‘BLUE WEEKEND’ Is About Epic Pop Brilliance

8 June 2021

Band: WOLF ALICE (UK)
Who: London quartet that became pretty
big (in the UK) over the years. They won
the Mercury Prize in 2018 with 2nd LP
Visions Of A Life

New album: BLUE WEEKEND – 3rd LP
Released: 11 June 2021 – order info here.

Ellie Rowsell (singer) about the new one: “I think, in terms of it sonically,
a lot of this album has quite a lot of stacked vocals which make me think of
choirs, and that’s maybe why it sounds a bit church-y, perhaps.”

NME‘s verdict: “If the singer and guitarist’s songwriting has become even more
accomplished since Wolf Alice’s last album, then so has her bandmates’ too. ‘Blue
Weekend’ is the group’s most cohesive listen, and keeps intact the restless spirit that
makes their work so unpredictable and exciting… A stone-cold masterpiece full of
confidence and magic that further cements their place at the very peak of British
music. Long may they remain there.
Full review: here. Score: 5/5.

Turn Up The Volume: Except for ardent rockers Smile and Play The Greatest Hits
the band takes a different direction with a stream of epic ballads with gospel-like
choirs (The Last Man On earth), emotional symphonies (How Can I Make It OK?) with
multi-layered goosebumps harmonies and orchestrated pop brilliance overall.

Ellie Rowsell is the star in the middle. She never sang better, she wrote her best ever
lyrics (so far) and she never looked better (yes, even more gorgeous than before).

Long Live The New WOLF ALICE – New Track ‘HOW CAN I MAKE IT OK?” Is Ace

4 June 2021

Band: WOLF ALCIE (London)

New album: BLUE WEEKEND – 3rd LP
Out: 11 June 2021 – order-facilities here.

New Single: After epic ballad (lead-single) The Last Man On Earth
and smoking belter Smile the London quartet dropped another
standout composition.

HOW CAN I MAKE IT OK? balances between the 2 previously shared cuts.
A crystal clear confirmation of a revitalized band on its way to a smashing
new longplayer. NME already heard it and calls it “a stone-cold masterpiece
full of confidence and magic.
” Full 5/5 review here.

What’s the difference compared to their previous work? Wolf Alice is becoming
a solid gold HQ songwriters team, leaning towards the mainstream but with
knockout pop music that touches heart and soul and ears. They’ll turn into
superstars very soon. Fact!

But first, the new ace How Can I Make It OK? masterstroke…

WOLF ALICE Will Return With New Album – But First The Extremely Furious Lead Single ‘YUK FOO’…

Noise that thrills us in a way we want to scream out loud…

After the superb 2015 debut album ‘Love Is Cool’ and after stunning concerts (I saw them glowing four times) all around the globe, British ardent rockers WOLF ALICE became one of the best new bands on this planet. Today – 12 June – they launched the first single from their upcoming, second longplayer. YUK FOO is an absolute banger injected with bottled up fury, out-of-control anger and crushing verbality. Gorgeous singer Ellie Rowsell is on fire. She fulminates like an eruptive volcano, almost out of her mind. Somebody hurt her really bad. Start her heated fuck you rage here, at your own risk…

[Verse 1]
Am I a bitch to not like you anymore?
Punch me in my face, I wouldn’t even fight you no more

[Chorus]
Cause you bore me
You bore me to death
Well, deplore me
No, I don’t give a shit

[Verse 2]
I wanna fuck all the people I meet
Fuck all my friends and all the people in the street

[Chorus]
Cause you bore me
You bore me to death
Well, deplore me
Well, I don’t give a shit (shit, shit, shit)

[Verse 3]
I don’t wanna be cruel, but you’re really grinding
I’m not a fool but I have a rage and it’s blinding
I feel it coming, is it exciting?
Yeah I’m unwinding

[Chorus]
You bore me
You bore me to death
Well, deplore me
No, I don’t give a shit
You bore me
You bore me to death
Well, deplore me
No, I don’t give a shit

[Post-Chorus]
You bore me to death
No, I don’t give a shit

[Bridge 2]
I have feelings, cause I’m a human
Totally self-destructive, constantly consuming
Now I’m fucked, I fucked you too
So fuck the world, and you, and you and

[Chorus]
You bore me
You bore me to death
Well, deplore me
No, I don’t give a shit
Cause you bore me
You bore me to death
Well, deplore me
No, I don’t give a shit


The band will release their 2nd album Visions Of A Life on 29 September via Dirty Hit.
