Wolf Alice: TAS In Session

At Wolf Alice's gig at Mercury Lounge in late January, the venue was jam-packed for this canny north London quartet with a knack for songs that teeter between stormy lashings and tender idylls. On the basis of two very impressive EPs released over the last two years, Blush (2013) and Creature Songs (2014), Wolf Alice has made ambitious strides, graduating from tiny Camden Town club gigs to behemoth festivals like Glastonbury. The band's debut album, My Love Is Cool, will be released on June 23. Watch Wolf Alice's set in Studio A and listen to the entire session and interview now in the FUV Vault.
