I’ve been a fan of Wolf Alice for a good few years. They have released quite a few EPs and two cracking albums, My Love Is Cool in 2015 and Visions of a Life in 2017.
Now they have returned with a very different single, The Last Man on Earth which starts with Ellie’s voice and piano, before the band join in and it builds and builds. It’s more expansive, more mature and a great advert for their new album Blue Weekend which is out in June, and I can’t wait.
Having heard the track quite a few times in the last week or so, I didn’t think it could get any better. That was until the band appeared on Later….with Jools Holland on Friday when they did a stunning live performance of the track. Everything about this version is just rperfect. The staging, the lighting, and the band sounding, and friends, sounding just brilliant.
