The second single from Wolf Alice
's highly anticipated sophomore album, Visions of a Life
, has dropped following an announcement made on Instagram
on the 4th of July. The song, called "Don't Delete the Kisses" is worlds apart from "Yuk Foo," the single that debuted last month.
"Yuk Foo" was aggressive, loud, and filled with angst and expletives. "Don't Delete the Kisses" is anything but. The song is light, dreamy, much more subdued than its predecessor. Ellie Rowsell delivers the verses in a delicate, almost angelic way, and adds a bit more power to her voice for a chant-like chorus. That, teamed with the gentle guitars, giving the song a whimsical, shoegaze-y vibe.
In typical Wolf Alice fashion, the synth-heavy track is different than all their other songs, but still clearly theirs. Hopefully, the group will continue to embrace their eclectic sound throughout the rest of the album.
Visions of a Life
will be released on September 29th.
