Band of the Week: Wolf Alice

20 Nov

Before NME gets all the credit for catapulting this London trio into the limelight, I wanted to get in on the action. Made up of Londoners Ellie Rowsell, Joel Amey and Joff (?), information about Wolf Alice is incredibly hard to come by. Their Bandcamp page is non-existent, while there are no tracks on their Facebook page; as such, we only have one track to judge them by. However, that one track ‘Leaving You’  (see below) has an intro that frankly made me want to orgasm, musically-speaking. It starts slow, earthly and then explodes into this psycho-pop melange of rock sexiness.  I want to see more music. NOW.


Band of the Week: Novella

17 Nov

My first post on CRASH and here’s a band from England. Consisting of Hollie Warren (guitar), Sophy Hollington (guitar) and Suki Sou (bass) they eminate a little Horrors-esque. Having just played their official single launch party for ‘Mary’s Gun’ at the Old Blue Last last weekend, they are a very cool addition to the British music scene at the moment.
