Wolf Alice - Rock City, Nottingham 23.03.2016 Live Review


2015 was a massive year for Wolf Alice and it looks like 2016 could be so much bigger, after finishing their current UK tour, the group will travel to America for a national headline tour. 

Wolf Alice - Rock City, Nottingham 23.03.2016 Live Review

Tonight Wolf Alice are gearing up for their show and it feels like you can't fit another person in the venue! The band enters the stage with Ellie sporting a long white t-shirt dress and Dr Martins, and pulls the look off effortlessly. 

We are treated to an instrumental intro which smoothly changes into 'Your Loves Whore' then, for me what is the best song on the album (somehow not made the top 40 charts!!!!), 'You're A Germ. A great build up and the the whole of Rock City began bouncing along to Ellie's standout vocal: "You ain't going to heaven (eyes wide, eyes wide)

Chloe Dobinson's Top 10 Albums Of 2015


Blur Drake The Libertines The Weeknd Foals Kendrick Lamar Florence and the Machine Muse Wolf Alice Disclosure

Drake, The Libertines, The Weeknd

10. Drake - If You're Reading This Then You're Too Late
Making an impromptu release of his 4th studio album Drake made a return proving why he is one of the most in demand rappers. Highlights of the album include opening track Legend -which features a long instrumental introduction with background vocals giving a harmonic feel to the track. Track Energy sees keys help make the track come alive with the Canadian rapper pushing himself as an artist and pushing the boundaries in the rap industry.

9. The Libertines - Anthems for Doomed Youth
Released in September The Libertines marked a return to the music scene following their 2004 self-titled album. A decade on the band proves their songwriting skills never went away with tracks such Gunga Din a racous, fun indie track making fans of The Libertines feels as if they never went away. Athems for Doomed Youth is a softer album from a band who is constanlty in the headlines for the wrong reasons. Heart of the Matter is a highlight of the album catchy, light and will become a firm favorite when the band play summer festival next year.

Dom Gourlay's Top 10 Albums Of 2015


Mew Haiku Salut Wolf Alice

Girl Band - Holding Hands With Jamie, Surf City - Jekyll Island, Mew - +-

10. Girl Band - Holding Hands With Jamie
Possibly the most eagerly anticipated debut from an underground band in recent times. The Dublin foursome's first offering did not disappoint, if not quite matching the intensity of their live shows. Bristling with visceral brutality somewhere between the polemic racket of Whitehouse and awkward disdain of The Fall, 'Holding Hands With Jamie' is an uneasy yet rewarding listen.

9. Surf City - Jekyll Island
Despite having formed over a decade ago, this New Zealand outfit have been more about quality than quantity when it comes to releases. So it should come as no surprise that 'Jekyll Island', their third long player, represents arguably their finest body of work to date.

Mercury Music Prize Florence and the Machine Wolf Alice Jamie XX Aphex Twin Roisin Murphy Gaz Coombes Ghostpoet

The Mercury Music Prize nominations for 2015 have been announced, and it’s a list with quite a few surprising omissions and inclusions.

The twelve artists fortunate enough to make the select list were announced over the course of Lauren Laverne’s BBC 6Music Radio show on Friday (October 16th), with Florence + The Machine and Wolf Alice being the biggest names among the dozen.

Florence + The Machine Edge Out Wolf Alice To UK No.1 Album Spot


Florence and the Machine Wolf Alice

In a very close sales race, Florence + The Machine have pipped Wolf Alice to the summit of the UK Albums Chart this weekend. Following a last-minute sales boost courtesy of her Glastonbury headline set, Florence won out over the indie newcomers by just 528 copies.

According the Official Charts Company, Florence’s third album How Big, How Blue, How Beautiful had been at Number 4 when the midweek chart was announced before the festival began, but the power of her performance, which was broadcast on the BBC, saw a surge in sales to reclaim the top spot that it had achieved when it was released originally at the start of June.
