Band release their debut album next week
Wolf Alice made their debut on US TV last night (June 16) as they performed ‘Moaning Lisa Smile’ on Conan.
The band were musical guests on Conan O’Brien’s chat show and appeared alongside celebrity guests Noah Wyle and Orange Is The New Black actress Lea DeLaria.
The north London band’s debut album ‘My Love Is Cool’ will be released on June 22 via Dirty Hit Records. It follows on from 2014’s ‘Creature Songs’ EP and 2013’s ‘Blush’.
Speaking previously about the LP, the band described the record as a “mix of genres”, with singer Ellie Rowsell telling NME that “It’s 100 percent not a grunge record. It’s a much braver record than that”.
Rowsell added: “We’ve been making sounds that don’t necessarily sound like guitar and experimenting with the way we use our voices. We’ve tried to match the emotion of the songs in how they’re performed and recorded, tried to make a sad song really feel and sound sad.”
Drummer Joel Amey continued that fans would be surprised by the sounds on the record, “because they surprised me when listening back to them. I’m kind of shocked we’ve made certain sounds – they’re really experimental and poppy. ‘What a guitar band can do’, in inverted commas, or what’s expected of us, we don’t want to settle for that.”
