Wolf Alice - Freazy

As with everything else Wolf Alice set their collective minds to, the gang mentality is out in full force.

Back when they first announced their debut ‘My Love Is Cool,’ Wolf Alice gave a knowing tap of the nose in response to questions about the album title. You’ll see, they said, just wait. ‘Freazy,’ with its unfazed chorus declaration “our love is cool,” forms a big chunk of the answer.

Echoing over a bendy, spaghetti-legged bass-line special from Theo Ellis, Joff Oddie’s subtly manning the whammy pedal to killer effect, while Joel Amey scuffs and pebble-kicks ‘Freazy’ along. As with everything else Wolf Alice set their collective minds to, the gang mentality is out in full force, and the energy is as addictive like a never-ending sherbet dib-dab. Compared with the powerhouse force of ‘Giant Peach,’ ‘Freazy’ lives at the more sugary end of Wolf Alice’s broad spectrum, but it creeps up regardless, turning into yet another gigantic song that grabs you by both shoulders in the sneakiest game of Grandma’s Footsteps ever. With the bullseye hitting singles stacking up, we’ve more than got the gist; ‘My Love Is Cool’ is one of the most exciting debut records released in years.
