Where debut single 'Fluffy' was a grungy, angst-ridden offering, which resulted in comparisons with Elastica, Wolf Alice's second single, 'Bros', is a much sweeter slice of indie-pop.

Borrowing the quiet-loud technique from bands like the Pixies, a gentle opening riff is met by Joel Amey's infectious drumbeat and shimmering 90s guitar from Joff… just 'Joff'. Ellie Rowsell sultrily reminisces, and is then layered, harmonised and blended with backing vocals that come courtesy of Amey.

It's a nostalgic track, in that it's as much of an ode to Britpop as it is to the lyricised childhood friendship.

Lauded by the press and BBC Radio One, this quartet from North London aren't necessarily doing anything new for guitar music, but they are doing it with the kind of youthful exuberance that makes you wonder what they might come up with next.

Already a burgeoning crowd-pleaser during their reputedly raucous live shows, 'Bros' is released on May 20th, via Chess Club Records, to coincide perfectly with their extensive UK tour.
