Single Review – Wolf Alice – Yuk Foo

First track from second LP ‘Visions Of A Life’, ‘Yuk Foo’ is a spite filled scream of vengeance; ‘I don’t want to be cruel, but you’re really grinding. I’m not a fool but I have a rage and it’s blinding.’ Siouxsie and the Banshees meet John Lydon in a dark alley while Black Francis throws stones, Ellie Rowsell’s, sometimes wonderfully yelped, vocals are fuelled with enough boiling, snarled anger to cut glass and reignite a nation of the disillusioned, tired and bored into a joyous form of anger that leaves you bouncing off the walls. Pushed forwards by a fearsome wall of industrial level grunge guitars and a bone shattering rhythm ‘Yuk Foo’ builds into a frenzy of twisted howls and splintered shrieks of frustration distilling everything that’s great about Wolf Alice into one of the best 2 minutes and 13 seconds of 2017.
