Alt In Our Stars Podcast: Wolf Alice and the Giant Peach
The band also premieres a behind-the-scenes tour video set to "Moaning Lisa Smile."
Believe the hype -- Wolf Alice's debut album is really, really good. This year, the London-based four-piece transitions from the buzz of early hits like "Giant Peach" and "Moaning Lisa Smile" to promoting their debut album My Love Is Cool, out June 23. They stopped by Billboard's New York office for an acoustic performance, broadcasted live via Periscope. This inspired the opening discussion on the latest edition of The Alt In Our Stars:
So what's the new album going to sound like? What does it take for a rock band to get scooped by a major label these days? Why is it easier for bands to crack the U.K. market than America's? The band discussed these points with host Chris Payne, and compared its journey to James and the Giant Peach. It's actually spot-on.
The band is also premiering a video shot while on tour. Watch them drink Guinness, apply temporary tattoos, and style each other's hair, set to "Moaning Lisa Smile":
