After "Leaving You" and more recently "Fluffy" I thought (wrongly) that Wolf Alice had morphed into a grunge-rock band and left their folkier roots behind them. With "Fluffy" especially the very definition of the word monster, big, pummelling beats and ballsy riffs which it left little to the imagination...
Now though we've been treated (and I do mean treated) to the single's flip-Side "White Leather", which recalls the London bands earlier material, a tender, love-lorn ballad with Ellie's soft vocals resonating beautifully over languid beats and surf guitars.
Incredible to think it's just a B-Side? Gorgeous stuff. Pre-order on 7" via Rough Trade.
