Wolf Alice dispel any myths around following up a hugely successful debut album, with the triumphant Visions Of A Life.
Heavenward opens with dissonant guitars that expand into shimmering shoegaze, perfectly complementing Ellie Roswell’s enchanting vocal. Yuk Foo completely changes direction, feeling something like an electric shock as Roswell’s fury is channelled into some impressive swearing. Beautifully Unconventional and Space & Time brings the band’s high energy to the fore, while the resplendent Don’t Delete The Kisses is equal parts dreamy and intriguing. Visions Of A Life is Wolf Alice revitalised and in charge, while managing to be impressively versatile with their sound.
Visions Of A Life is out September 29 via Liberator Music/Dirty Hit.
