Having debuted this past Friday on Huw Stephen's In New Music We Trust on BBC Radio One, North London's Wolf Alice are set to release their debut single on 11th February through Chess Club Records in the form of 'Fluffy'.
Wolf Alice made a spectacular entrance with the insatiable 'Leaving You' - a download-only track that found its way onto Radio One, top of NME's lauded Radar section, peaking the Hype Machine charts and finding the band with a swell of new fans following a tour with Peace. The once-trio of Ellie Rowsell, Joel Amey and Joff Oddie - now joined by Theo Ellis on bass - release 'Fluffy' as another remarkable statement of intent, certifying their burgeoning reputation as one of London's hottest new acts.
Far removed from their folk-beginnings, 'Fluffy' rocks with a ballsy and unabashed nonchalance, echoing the raucous live sets the band have quickly become reputed for. Breaking from a groove-laden smack of distorted guitars and thumping drums, Ellie Rowsell's tender vocals then take centre stage as the hypnotic tale of seeking cheap thrills in the mire of small town boredom forces an unadulterated high.
Wolf Alice will be performing at Neu Magazine's Ones To Watch evening at The Old Blue Last in London on Tuesday 8th January.
