Wolf Alice are a rock band from London who have only released one EP and a handful of singles so far. I don’t feature much new guitar-driven rock music here because frankly I find a lot of it boring and predictable, but I can still be turned on by some big noisy riffage like these these tracks from their latest EP Creature Songs out later this month.
It’s all very “alternative rock” and won’t win any prizes for pushing envelopes but sometimes crashing guitars and a big chorus can still really hit the spot.
Psychedelic Prog-Metal is hardly my cup of tea but London-based Purson sweeten their long-haired riffing with some solid tunes and have a hell of a lead singer in Rosie Cunningham. They would make the ideal soundtrack for an old Hammer film involving witchcraft and virgins being sacrificed on pentangles.
Is this going to be the next big thing? Time to break out the velvet flares and Dennis Wheatley novels.
