I think of Wolf Alice as noisy and primal, but at the Tiny Desk, the band showed a different side — one that was childlike, pretty and quietly wonderful. I knew the three songs the group played from Wolf Alice’s 2015 album My Love Is Cool, but I hardly recognized them at first. One test when you’re trying to spot talent is seeing how artists step up to a challenge, and Wolf Alice’s songs sound muscular even when stripped of volume. The Mercury Prize-nominated British band is a great discovery, and I’m still enchanted.
