Since the release of their debut album My Love Is Cool in 2015, sparkling indie-punk outfit Wolf Alice have been one of the most promising future legends in the scene. Because of this, the gap between their second album, 2017s Visions of a Life and now has been painfully long as we wait to see how the band’s signature combination of shoegaze, punk and alt-rock will manifest next.
Excitingly, Wednesday provided the first glimmer of future Wolf Alice material with the release of ‘The Last Man On Earth’, their first single from upcoming album Blue Weekend. Here the band take a more reflective approach, once again majestically evoking emotion through poignant lyricism and the striking performance of front woman Ellie Rowsell.
Whether ‘The Last Man on Earth’ will be indicative of Blue Weekend’s sound is hard to tell as the band’s album track listing is usually so varied, yet one can only imagine most new Wolf Alice music will be a product of the fear and emotion of modern life.
You can preorder Blue Monday here. It will be released on the 11th June 2021.
