There's something incredibly teenage about Wolf Alice.
The band's music - torn and tattered grunge delivered with a sigh - is matched to lyrics which constantly seek out some form of identity.
New track 'Moaning Lisa Smile' pushes Ellie Rowsell's vocal to the fore. A passionate dissection of a young girl seeking to find her own individuality, it comes backed with some striking visuals.
"'Moaning Lisa Smile' was inspired by our favorite 8 year old girl, Lisa Simpson," the singer explains. "We wanted to create a Lisa-type character and follow her in a pursuit to happiness. Although faced with obstacles in the shape of some nasty bitches, Lisa soon finds the group who make her feel like she belongs."
Directed by Ozzie Pullin and produced by Nicole Gray, the video for 'Moaning Lisa Smile' features a darkly surreal dance routine.
