Wolf Alice Debut “No Hard Feelings”
Wolf Alice have dropped “No Hard Feelings.” The song is the third off the UK quartet’s forthcoming release Blue Weekend. The track is accompanied by a video directed by Jordan Hemingway (Gucci, Raf Simons, Comme Des Garçons), the band’s third collaboration with Hemmingway, following the singles “The Last Man On Earth” and “Smile”.
Wolf Alice’s Ellie Rowsell “No Hard Feelings:”
“I started out trying to make a really cheesy almost Motown-y, Ronettes kind of song about the end of a relationship, and feeling ‘What’s the point of being miserable about it?’ But it was short, because originally it was played so fast. I tried to make it longer, but I didn’t have any more words — I had said everything I wanted to say perfectly, and didn’t want to ruin it with more. So instead we slowed it down, and I felt way more moved by it like that.”
Wolf Alice recently announced a 2022 UK & Ireland tour, their first headline shows since 2018; the majority of dates sold out within hours and a number of new shows have been added, including second shows in London, Manchester, Bristol and Dublin, and a third night in Glasgow. For the full list of dates see below, to purchase tickets go to https://wolfalice.co.uk/#tickets. Before then, on May 22, Wolf Alice will play the Glastonbury Presents Live at Worthy Farm Livestream alongside Coldplay, Michael Kiwanuka, Haim and more.
For the recording of Blue Weekend, the band headed to an Airbnb in Somerset, and it was there that they reconfigured who they were together. They cemented their friendship and set to work on some fledgling demos in a converted church. These demos evolved into Blue Weekend, a record produced by Markus Dravs (Arcade Fire, Björk, Brian Eno, Florence + The Machine) who has aided the band in refining their sound.
