New Track From Wolf Alice: “Beautifully Unconventional”

London-based rock band Wolf Alice released the music video for their new track “Beautifully Unconventional”.  The video, which was directed by Stephen Agnew, premiered on The FADER. “This song is a celebration of all your non-conforming friends,” Ellie Rowsell explained to The FADER. A celebration of individuality and the adventures that come with embracing that. For me personally, I imagined me and my mate Hannah as Christian Slater and Winona Rider in Heathers albeit looking nothing like them. The video has nothing to do with the song  I just didn’t want to have a mullet anymore, seeing as lots of people tore me to pieces in our last video, so it was an excuse to wear a wig!”
 
“Beautifully Unconventional” will be included on the band’s upcoming sophomore album entitled, Visions Of A Life, which is set for release September 29th, 2017 via Dirty Hit/RCA Records and is available for pre-order now.

“Similarities to Two Door Cinema Club and Swim Deep” – It’s All Indie

“The contemporary indie pop references are there for modern listeners to lap up – the African guitar riffs, the disco rhythms and the singalong choruses all mark Burning Feet, Dancer and Figure It Out as songs that the kids will absolutely love.” – TODAYonline

“DIY indie pop band from Oz that music lovers in the United States need to hear because we think they’re pretty amazing” – Indie Rock Cafe

“Sounds like Foals, Bloc Party, The Temper Trap” – Indie Shuffle

“Filled with layers of catchy melodies and vibrant polyphonic textures, this tune will take you back to Summer-holiday music festival; think Last Dinosaurs meets Neon Indian. Songwriting aside, the production value of this track is flawless.” – adamNOTeve
