Wolf Alice Slash Through ‘Moaning Lisa Smile’ on ‘Conan’
Wolf Alice made their TV debut on 'Conan' last night, ripping through "Moaning Lisa Smile" from their forthcoming debut album My Love is Cool.
Viewers saw guitarist Joff Oddie kick the song off with a heavy chord progression before the band clicked into grungy guitar rock with a nitrus oxide sheen. First-time Wolf Alice listeners heard a band that plays heavy-lidded pop that displays a clear shoegaze influence.
My Love Is Cool is due out June 22 and follows the 2013 release of the Blush EP and 2014's Creature Songs EP. In a recent interview, singer Ellie Rowsell gave us a preview of the album's sound. "It’s bigger, a bit braver and hopefully a whole lot better," she said. "It sees a lot of the same vibes from across our two EPs, but taken a bit further -- so the heavy stuff is heavier and the pop stuff is poppier."
