Wolf Alice

03-Wolf-Alice---Cosores

Wolf Alice may be gearing up to support fellow Brits The 1975 on their upcoming North American tour, but they seem much less concerned with cultivating a fashionable image. Led by a powerful vocalist in Ellie Rowsell, the quartet turned Coachella’s Outdoor Theater into a demonstration of why they might one day be Britain’s band to beat. Breathless rockers like “Fluffy” and “Giant Peach” — both off 2015’s My Love Is Cool — found the band firing on all cylinders and staring straight into the afternoon sun without so much as a flinch. Wolf Alice hasn’t quite made it to the point where they can captivate an audience for more than 30 minutes at a time, but give them a few more albums and they’ll more than earn an invitation to the main stage. –Collin Brennan
