Wolf Alice have had a busy week as they released a new music video and were featured in an afternoon South by Southwest (SXSW) webcast on March 19th, 2015. Now, the group has unveiled a new track, “I Saw You (In A Corridor).”
“I Saw You (In A Corridor” is the B-side to Wolf Alice’s current single, “Giant Peach”. Both songs will be released on the band’s forthcoming debut album, “My Love Is Cool”, which is out on May 22nd, 2015.
Take a listen, below.
This new song begs the question, what does the rest of the album sound like? And, how were some of the unique sounds created?
“My Love Is Cool” is the follow up to Wolf Alice’s 2014 EP “Creature Songs”. And, in an interview with NME, lead vocalist Ellie Roswell described the band’s first full length album as, “It’s 100 percent not a grunge record. It’s a much braver record than that,” Rowsell said. “There’s a mix of genres on it. We’re using our instruments in different ways, like Joff [Oddie] using his guitar as a synth.”
She continued: “We’ve been making sounds that don’t necessarily sound like guitar and experimenting with the way we use our voices. We’ve tried to match the emotion of the songs in how they’re performed and recorded, tried to make a sad song really feel and sound sad.”
