Wolf Alice are the latest addition to 2013's indie revival – and by revival we're alluding to the moderate success of Birmingham's Peace and Swim Deep rather than the chart toppling, cultural revolution of Brit Pop. But who knows what these bands could evolve into?
It's still very much early days for Wolf Alice – the north London quartet who took their name from a short story by Angela Carter about girls growing up.
Their music evokes an appropriately angsty atmosphere too – the adrenaline fuelled flurry of first loves and the crushing disappointment of heartache - it's all in this short but emotionally explosive EP, out through Chess Club.
Have a listen, sob into a pillow, then let us know what you think.
