Wolf Alice “can’t wait to explore” at Glastonbury 2015

The band will be returning to the Tor for the second time, but this year, they’re planning to take full advantage of the weekend.

Last year, Wolf Alice made their Glastonbury debut and now they’ve been invited back for round two, but judging by what the band’s Theo Ellis had to tell us, their first visit to Pilton was a bit terrifying all around for the quartet…

“Glasto last year was definitely a baptism of fire for us,” he admits. “It was probably the biggest outdoor stage we played all year and the first on our summer run. It was easily the most nervous the four of us have been - Joel was actually completely fine. I can remember those nerves not fading even as the set was finishing.” This year, however, they’ll be taking their set a little more in their stride. “As a mildly more experienced band it’s exciting to come back and see what we can do.

“Being invited back is undoubtedly a massive honour,” he goes on, before detailing their plans to debut a handful of cuts from their newly-released debut ‘My Love Is Cool’. “We like to keep our festival shows up tempo and full of energy, so we’re planning a fast paced set including a solid number of album tracks. We haven’t got any mad pyro or production tricks up our sleeves.”

As for what he loves about Glastonbury distinctly…“My favourite aspect of Glastonbury is the endlessness of the site itself. We only had an evening last year, so I can’t wait to explore. The idea of finally catching some other friends play is what I’m most looking forward too. That and the stone circle.”
