North London’s Wolf Alice has spent their four years recording together outside the critical and cultural zeitgeist; their music largely ignores the trends of the day, instead opting for a sound that recalls the halcyon days of 2000s indie rock. The band’s soaring new single “Don’t Delete the Kisses” doesn’t change any of that, but it does signal the band’s growing confidence and swagger. Lead vocalist Ellie Rowsell shines on the chorus as she exclaims, “love – what if it’s not meant for me?” Her tune changes near the end of the track, moments after she realizes she’s found the real thing. “Me and you were meant to be in love,” she rejoices. So what if its led her to become “a romantic cliché”? Wolf Alice has never sounded so promising.
