Wolf Alice - I Saw You (In A Corridor)

Wolf Alice are at their most deliberately restrained here, and unearth a gorgeously vulnerable side.

With ‘Giant Peach,’ Wolf Alice confirmed - as if it even needed extra proof - that they can effortlessly flick a switch and turn everyone into turbo powered nodding dogs at the drop of a monster riff. ‘I Saw You (In A Corridor),’ the band’s new super-limited single, is a separate endeavor to their forthcoming debut album, and it somersaults towards stripped-back acoustics. Aside from muffled nattering humming away now and then in the background, and the occasional seventh chord embellishment, Ellie Rowsell’s crystalline vocal takes centre-stage.

‘I Saw You (In A Corridor)’ captures that all too familiar feeling of hovering in space before plunging into a terrifying loop-the-loop on a rollercoaster, energy-drink fuelled butterflies flitting around your stomach, or accidentally falling for someone. Wolf Alice are at their most deliberately restrained here, and by placing tighter parameters around their expansive, fuzz-drenched foundations, they unearth a gorgeously vulnerable side. Wolf Alice are unstoppable, and they work flutes and Game of Thrones robes like nobody else on this sweet earth. With ‘I Saw You (In A Corridor),’ they show that emotional potency is fast becoming one of their major currencies, too.
