Anger, bile and spite spill over in Wolf Alice’s extremely thinly-veiled new record.
Talking about the new single in a press release, vocalist Ellie says: “We wanted to make it open to interpretation, so that anyone who was frustrated at something could have it as their anthem.”
Saying the track is inspired by “being sick and fed up of certain expectations… for me a lot of it is about being a young woman. Even the shit, everyday wolf-whistle thing. As I get older, I feel like ‘Why have I always put up with that?’ When I sing that kind of song, it’s everything that I want to do when that happens.”
It’s driven along by the most dramatic of basslines and is a taster of their second album which is due in September.
