Wolf Alice are headed back to London.
The group, who have just completed a successful US tour and received a Mercury Prize nomination for their debut album ‘My Love Is Cool’, return to their hometown with a show at The O2 Forum in Kentish Town on 27 March 2016.
Tickets go on general sale on 23 October 2015.
The band — Ellie Rowsell (guitar/vocals), Theo Ellis (bass), Joff Oddie (guitars) and Joel Amey (drums/vocals) — last played London in September, selling out the Brixton Academy on the basis of their electric on-stage performances and powerful songs.
From the big riffs of ‘Giant Peach’ and frolicking drum beat of the infectious ‘Bros’ to the urgent melodies of ‘Lisbon’ and hip-hop rhythms of ‘Silk’, ’My Love Is Cool’ explores Wolf Alice’s multiple characters.
“Everyone kept telling us we were so eclectic and incapable of being pigeon-holed,” said Ellis.
“The album is an expression of our sound, cross-pollinated by what’s come before. A consistent representation of those ideas,” Rowsell added.
Last November, the band laid down those ideas over five weeks in a Wood Green studio with producer Mike Crossey. They entered the space with 20 songs spanning from three years to a few weeks old, and the songs picked for the final track listing were simply the ones they still had feverish performances for.
