Ones to Watch 2014 - #1 Wolf Alice

Wolf Alice are a four piece indie rock group consisting of Ellie Rowsell, Joel Amey, Joff Oddie and Theo Ellis. Following the release of two singles, Fluffy and Bros, earlier this year and the Blush EP this autumn there’s a definite sense of this band growing an increasingly forward momentum. Their live performances are becoming gutsily more confident and their song writing skills are developing at some pace; the title track off the recent EP is one of the most vital and well-formed tunes that any indie band has released this year. If they can continue to develop in this manner (and the signs are there that they will, having recently confessed to a magazine that they figured out when they were on tour that Bros didn’t have any choruses, so they wrote some, but those aren’t on the Blush EP) they’re likely to make the jump from toilet circuit venues to bigger clubs at least and who knows, maybe even further than that.

For anyone that’s still being boring and going on about indie rock music being dead, Wolf Alice is one punchy argument fully against that. That’s why they’re the first of our Ones to Watch for 2014.
