There might’ve been no storms above the Glastonbury site so far this Saturday (28th June), but there’s definitely some on stage, as the Wolf Alice B-side’s blistering riffs are just some of those shaking the John Peel Stage to its core during the Londoners’ early-evening set.

Wolf Alice have always been at the top of the loud-quiet-loud game, but here at Glastonbury, somehow the loud is louder, the quieter more intense, the guitars more face-melting and Ellie Rowsell’s vocals even stronger. If there’s any way to ‘win’ at Glastonbury, they’d better hand the prize over now.

“Let’s have a singalong for a bit”, Ellie says, before launching in to an impeccable ‘Blush’ that segues in to their cover of 80s hit ‘Wicked Game’. But once again it’s that untitled song from their BBC Radio 1 session that’s the stand-out; Ellie’s screaming brilliantly matched in intensity by riffs that a certain Mr Plant over on the Pyramid Stage should be a fan of.
