is gearing up for the release of their highly anticipated sophomore record on September 29, and the few previews we've had so far do not disappoint. The band gained a strong cult following after their early EPs, but turned heads with their explosive debut record My Love Is Cool
. While their studio cuts are flawlessly engineered mixes of fuzzy guitars and wailing vocals, Wolf Alice has always been a live band. Their latest track, "Beautifully Unconventional," will definitely be a crowd favorite on their upcoming tour.
After premiering the lead single "Yuk Foo"
earlier this summer, it was clear Wolf Alice was still very comfortable with their ferocious, 90s inspired sound. The second single, "Don't Delete the Kisses,"
showed the band's versatility with its tender lyrics and synth-infused melody. "Beautifully Unconventional" sits perfectly between those two extremes, a celebratory anthem with an effortlessly cool hook. Singer Ellie Rowsell says, "I wrote it about one of my friends. My feelings towards her reminded me of the film Heathers
…a ‘you can be my partner in crime', sorta thing."
If you aren't already impressed by Wolf Alice's irresistible talent, "Beautifully Unconventional" proves Visions of a Life
will absolutely change your mind.
