Album review: Wolf Alice – Blue Weekend

Wolf Alice have always been more interesting than your standard indie band, on Blue Weekend, they’ve slipped comfortably into a higher zone.
On an album of personal and at times, brutal awareness, the line of ‘I am what I am and I’m good at it’, could be its most insightful.



Whether any band truly feels confident in themselves is one thing, but Wolf Alice are surely more at ease with themselves than ever before.

For a record with no single style, it pulls together outrageously well. The thrash assaults mingle with piano balladry, the lush overtones jostle with piercing screams and melodic breaths. Musically, it’s a playlist for your moods, lyrically, a pathway to somewhere better than where we are today.

The internet will likely drown in praise and analysis of Blue Weekend from this point on, but it’s well-deserved. Give it time to breathe, and it’ll never leave you.

Blue Weekend was released on 4th June on Dirty Hit
