British rockers Wolf Alice have shared the second track from their upcoming sophomore full-length record Visions of a Life.
Titled “Don’t Delete the Kisses”, the song has me that much more excited to see the four-piece tear up The Echo later this month in a massive underplay. The track has a bit of a shoegazey atmospheric feel to it, with singer Ellie Rowsell’s vocals in each verse in a more spoken-word style, similar to on tracks like “The Wonderwhy” from their debut record My Love is Cool.
The band has done an incredible job at not allowing themselves to be put in any boxes. One of their first tracks — “Moaning Lisa Smile” — had critics calling them a grunge band. But the depth of their debut record showed they’ve got more than one speed. This track serves as a stark contrast to the first single from their new album, “Yuk Foo”, which was a scorcher.
Their upcoming album might be my most anticipated still to come in 2017. The record drops Sept. 29 via Dirty Hit/RCA Records, and I love what we’ve heard so far. I can’t wait to see some of these new tunes played live in a few weeks!
Didn’t snatch up tickets to see Wolf Alice at The Echo before they sold out in 10 minutes? You can catch them as part of the epic rock fest Cal Jam 17 in San Bernardino in October! You can also pre-order Visions of a Life now, and you’ll receive the first two released songs ahead of time.
The band also revealed the cover art for the new record, which you can see below. They hilariously shared on Twitter that it is an image “of Ellie’s aunt Helen playing a classic game of ‘dance ’round the horse’s skull in your Sunday best'”. Take a look!
