'Boys' meets 'Boys Don't Cry'
Wolf Alice appeared on Australian radio station Triple J earlier this week, offering up a new joint cover of Charli XCX’s ‘Boys’ and The Cure’s ‘Boys Don’t Cry’.
The track comes after Charli XCX herself covered Wolf Alice’s ‘Don’t Delete The Kisses’ for the Like A Version series, before offering up a fully-fledged remix of the track.
Now, Wolf Alice have repaid the favour, slipping in elements of the classic Cure track alongside ‘Boys” lovestruck pop smash. Check out the amazing rendition below.
As part of their Australian tour, the band recently appeared at Melbourne’s Laneway Festival – check out the NME review here.
“Fresh off the back of a huge run of arena dates in the UK, Wolf Alice lose none of their potency on the decidedly smaller Dean Turner stage,” we wrote of their mid-afternoon set. “If anything, that intimacy is where they thrive – whether it’s the snarling ‘Yuk Foo’ or the lilting ‘Bros’ (which remains the ultimate festival anthem), Wolf Alice are even more vital when they’re up close and personal.”
Discussing her love of Charli XCX, Wolf Alice’s Ellie Rowsell recently said: “I just love her balls out pop music, she’s a great performer and there’s always this kind of excitement and thrill surrounding her. She puts fun into everything she does.”
Rowsell added: “She’s wrote some massive bangers and I like that she’s putting out like mixtapes and stuff and not always playing by the guidebook.”
