Wolf Alice: “Giant Peach” (Live)

Posted by on Oct 7, 2015

All this week, the Song of the Day highlights ACL Fest 2015 artists.

Some songs immediately grab you and force you to pay attention. A few months ago, Wolf Alice’s “Giant Peach” came roaring out of my car speakers. It’s made for late-night drives, alternating between pulsating cool and a distorted hurricane of sound. Somehow, the song holds you at arm’s-length, blasting your eardrums while remaining a little bit mysterious.

On their debut album, My Love Is Cool, the British band pulls from a bunch of different eras–grunge, ’70s hard rock, ’80s punk–but they make the synthesis sound fresh. On stage, Wolf Alice is even better, and we’ve got a live version of “Giant Peach” to prove it. Download the song below.
