Wolf Alice, one of the biggest breakthrough independent bands of recent years, make their eagerly anticipated return with their second album Visions Of A Life OUT NOW via Dirty Hit / Liberator MusiC. Following the release of ‘Don’t Delete The Kisses’ – which was the #1 most played track on triple j – comes their new single, ‘Beautifully Unconventional’. The single is currently on BBC Radio 1’s A-List.

“This song is a celebration of all your non-conforming friends,” Ellie Rowsell explained to The FADER. “A celebration of individuality and the adventures that come with embracing that. For me personally I imagined me and my mate Hannah as Christian Slater and Winona Rider in Heathers albeit looking nothing like them. The video has nothing to do with the song – I just didn’t want to have a mullet anymore, seeing as lots of people tore me to pieces in our last video, so it was an excuse to wear a wig!”

Prior to the release of Visions of a Life, the band revealed four tracks – the exhilarating rage-rush that was first single Yuk Foo’ (premiered by Annie Mac on BBC Radio 1), the beautifully paced, sweet and slow-burning Don’t Delete The Kisses, the anthemic celebration of individuality that is new single ‘Beautifully Unconventional’ and final teaser, ‘Heavenward’, a cloudburst of shoegazey guitar and vaulting vocals.

Wolf Alice are Ellie Rowsell (vocals, guitar), Joff Oddie (guitar, vocals), Theo Ellis (bass) and Joel Amey (drums, vocals). The band’s 2015 debut album My Love Is Cool hit No. 2 in the UK charts in June of that year, and No. 12 on the Billboard alternative albums chart in the US. They were nominated for the Mercury prize, Ivor Novello Award, a Brit for Breakthrough Act and Grammy for Best Rock Performance, and took an NME Award for Best Live Band. They crisscrossed the UK, the US, Australia (Falls Festival 2014, Splendour in the Grass 2015 + headline shows), Japan and Europe on the mother of all two-year tours.

Visions Of A Life is fundamentally a personal album, and one of great growth for Wolf Alice. From opener ‘Heavenward’ through to the epic, eight-minute closing title track, it’s packed with surprises for those who think they know what Wolf Alice’s shtick is.
