After what seems like eons of build-up and short but sweet EP releases, the wait for Wolf Alice's debut album is finally over and at last we get to indulge ourselves in the full spectrum of the band's origins. Made up of new and previously released tracks, the new full-length 'My Love Is Cool' is a retrospective snapshot of the band's first five years as a unit and aims to give us a blank canvas on which to form our opinion of their developing sound.
While fans of the group will be more aware of some of the material on here, the cohesion in which all these songs fit into this release is both apt and suitable. Wolf Alice have managed to build a general sound within this record that expresses not only where they plan to go but also where they have been, giving this release a far boarder sense of direction and their music a more evolved finish.
Competent and engaging throughout, 'My Love Is Cool' is one of the most enjoyable albums we have heard so far this year. Living up to their more than deserved hype, Wolf Alice are certainly hitting the ground running here.
