New Music Monday: LA Priest & Wolf Alice

New Music Monday: LA Priest & Wolf Alice


This bright and sunny Monday sees a brand new era for Sam Dust, formerly of Later of the Pier, and another solid single from Wolf Alice's My Love Is Cool.


LA Priest – Inji (Album)

Inji doesn't really sound like a debut album. In fact, even the word 'album' sounds out of place as its synth-pop swerves into toned down disco, and back out again with a ping-electro backbeat. Inji feels much more like a label compilation, every track stretching the word eclectic to its maximum width. But Sam Dust carries this first offering from LA Priest through with impressive cohesion, injecting an off-handed care that fills the record with warmth.

You can catch LA Priest at Way Out West and Club to Club Torino.

 

Wolf Alice – Freazy (Single)

Narrowly beaten to number 1 in the UK albums chart by Glastobury-topping Florence and the Machine, Wolf Alice have a fair claim to being Britain's foremost indie band right now. Their clear-cut, mellow drive melds naturally with Ellie Rowsell's vocals, achieving that rare type of sound that has both niche and popular appeal. New single Freazy typifies this, lilting and stumbling into a beautiful, care-free melody.

Wolf Alice are hard at work this year, with appearances at Calling Festival, Latitude, Zurich Openair, Reading & Leeds, Lollapalooza Berlin, and DCODE yet to come.
