Wolf Alice, one of the biggest breakthrough independent bands of recent years, make their eagerly anticipated return, announcing new album Visions Of A Life and single Yuk Foo As comebacks go, a gauntlet is hurled by the exhilarating rage-rush of Yuk Foo, briskly laying waste to all it sees in a little over two minutes. “You bore me, you bore me to death,” screams singer and guitarist Ellie Rowsell: “Deplore me? No I don’t give a shit.” Wolf Alice finally came off the road, instead of floundering or foundering, they channelled their restless energy into a forward motion.
The music video for Yuk Foo is the most simplistic video to date for Wolf Alice but it gets the point across yet you cannot help but watch even though you’re at risk of a seizure. The London four-piece relocated to Los Angeles earlier this year to make Visions Of A Life with producer Justin Meldal-Johnsen (Paramore, Beck, Nine Inch Nails). The record will be released on September 29.
