Following on from the announcement of their brand new EP to be released Monday 26th May on Dirty Hit Records, London four piece Wolf Alice have made the EP's second track 'Storms' available to stream online now.
'Moaning Lisa Smile's introductory statement of the band's new intent is seconded emphatically with the rousing 'Storms'. Attention stealing in its blistering wall of noise opening, 'Storms' furthers the band's inimitable form of guitar anthemry, as ever complimented by the dynamic beauty of Ellie Rowsell's chameleon vocal.
Produced by Catherine Marks (Howling Bells, Foals) and recorded at ICP studios, Belgium, 'Creature Songs' heralds an unmistakable step forward in the band's songwriting. Lead track, 'Moaning Lisa Smile' opens the EP and showcases Wolf Alice at their most powerful: a snarling single of skyscraping proportions that's quickly become a fan favourite at the band's incendiary live shows.
2014 has already seen Wolf Alice named one of iTunes' 'Artists For 2014' as well as being touted by the likes of NME (Young Britannia - Future Of British Music), XFM (Great X-pectations) and Hype Machine (Ones To Watch) as one of the hottest prospects of the year ahead.
