Loup Alice New Album | “The blue weekend”
Indie giants Wolf alice released their new album from another world Blue weekend. Every song on this LP further consolidates English rockers as one of the most dynamic quartets making music today. As typical of Wolf Alice, their transcendent album features a crossroads of skillful instrumentation and dramatic lyrical themes.
While they have been compared to people like Hole and the xx, it is difficult to attribute Blue weekend nothing less than pure originality. “The beach” opens the album with a slow, mute guitar and lead singer Ellie Rowsell’s whispered the falsetto as a gradual crescendo leads to “Delicious things. The album took a different direction in each song, from groovy drum fills and jazzy guitar riffs in ‘Delicious Things’ to eerie and distorted basslines in “Play the biggest hits. “

Similar to most of the band’s releases, their most recent album isn’t afraid to go a little deep. “I’m not ashamed of the fact that I’m sensitive / I think that’s the perfect adjective,” Rowsell raps in “Smile. “Although the song is about brushing off the bullshit, so to speak, the next track “Safe from grief (if you never fall in love)»Underlines the vulnerability that the artist is ready to share.
“Proper wanted to say something on the new album but still can’t find the right words”, the bassist Theo Ellis wrote on Twitter. “I am so lucky to do this with these 3 people every day and I am always in awe of them and their talents.”
Blue weekend was released on the UK label Dirty blow and is the group’s third full album. Their 2017 album Visions of a lifetime won group one Mercury Prize, one of the highest accolades that a British group can receive. Fans are equally enthusiastic and flock to Twitter to congratulate the group.

The group also released a clip on the same day as the Blue weekend Release. “How can I do it right?»Is led by Jordan hemingway, whose signature vintage art direction takes center stage in an underground club with vintage CRT televisions as a backdrop. A nervous performer begins to sing along with Rowsell’s voice layered, trying to overcome his reluctance and internal struggles. As the anonymous singer finally regains his confidence and comes out of his shell, an audience member watches in awe and adoration. Who cannot identify themselves?
As the singer continues to be more comfortable on stage, the patron who supports him becomes more and more elated by his performance. The two finally kiss at the end, where the singer seems amazed at the level of support he has received. The viewer, meanwhile, looks delighted and content, like a friend who has finally been able to see them fulfill their dreams. Due to the depth of the band’s artistic reach and the song’s lyrical content, it’s hard not to feel like it’s not conceptual.
