Pie & Vinyl have just announced another stellar booking for their next special in-store performance, the four-piece alternative band from London, Wolf Alice. I first manage to catch them play on Bestival‘s main stage last year and they were excellent. I will be working hard to make sure I am first in line to see this show on Sunday 1st October!
The band were initially a two piece but around 2009 they became a foursome consisting of Ellie Rowsell (vocals, guitar), Joff Oddie (guitars, vocals), Theo Ellis (bass) and Joel Amey (drums, vocals). The name Wolf Alice was taken from a book Rowsell stole by Angela Carter from the school library. Wolf Alice is a child raised by wolves. Even though she is physically a woman “Nothing about her is human except that she is not a wolf.”
As well as earning a reputation as a great live act with live shows across the UK and abroad the band have received mainstream recognition with award nominations from the Brit awards, Grammy awards and an Ivor Novello award for ‘Bros’. Their debut album ‘My Love Is Cool’ was also nominated for the prestigious Mercury Music Prize.
