FOLLOWING the news that their eagerly anticipated third album ‘Blue Weekend’ will arrive a week early on 4th June, Wolf Alice have shared another tremendous preview track called ‘No Hard Feelings’.
Slowing down the pace, it shows yet another side of the band, taking its influence from an unlikely source – Motown girl groups. Namechecking Amy Winehouse’s ‘Love is a Losing Game’, it may be more stripped-back, but it still packs an emotional punch as Ellie Rowsell reflects on a break-up.
“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?’,” bandleader Ellie Roswell explained in a press release. “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.”
