Single Review – Wolf Alice – Don’t Delete The Kisses

After the first hint of Wolf Alice’s forthcoming second album ‘Visions Of A Life’, due for release on the 29th of September, in the shape of fiercely vengeful ‘Yuk Foo’ things calm down considerably with the band’s mellower second single ‘Don’t Delete The Kisses’. A sweet track that gives a Pulp meets La Roux edge to Wolf Alice’s fuzzy alternative-rock. Ellie Rowsell whispers her insecurities of flirtatious texting softly in your ears, sighing through hazy verses in a way that seems to echo with the scribbled heartache of too many a love torn teen diary. Probably the closest to an out and out love song that Wolf Alice is likely to create, any romantic cliches are kept to a minimum wrapped in humanised chipped nail varnish and Dutch courage failures. Things are kept bright and airy as synths lift the track into a breezy though lyrically pessimistic chorus, and aren’t they really the best kind.
