music preview: Wolf Alice at The Middle East Wednesday August 5, 2015

wolf-alice-band

I adore this band so much right now. Along the lines of Curve and Throwing Muses, this is gorgeous indie guitar rock with dark swirling melodies and a female vocalist. Simultaneously haunting and brazen with spidery guitar and hard bass, Wolf Alice cuts all angles. I found out about Wolf Alice from DJ Dan O’Connell on XFM London—the benefits of listening to a London radio station at the gym etal. In June, the North London band released its debut album, My Love Is Cool [Dirty Hit/RCA Records].

The fourpiece is currently on tour in the states and will be playing my birthday [happy birthday to me!]– Wednesday August 5 2015– at The Middle East Restaurant and Nightclub in Cambridge, Mass.
