Wolf Alice have taken strides since gifted veteran Joel Amey took up the sticks for them at the beginning of the summer, transforming the band from a sweet acoustic hobby to major players by introducing them to the gold-plated concept of regular gigging. Since this invigorating move, Wolf Alice have grabbed the live scene by the horns, and following a trickle of folk-tinged nuggets, their latest release, Leaving You, finally discloses their full manifesto of harmony-laden pop to the world, immediately making its point of placing the band’s greatest asset up on a pedestal in Ellie Rowsell’s stunning voice. It’s great to see this band, who have been so consistently charming from the off, push themselves out into the open – they’ve got a lot of heart to share.
