TBT: Wolf Alice's "Blush"

London quintet Wolf Alice have been making major waves with their most recent single, "Bros" (which I wrote about here), almost as if... they're a brand new band.

Don't get me wrong, in the grand scheme of things, these Brits are most definitely new(er) to the scene - but, they've been putting out solid indie-rock for over three years.

For instance, the self-titled track from their 2013 EP Blush always comes to mind whenever I hear someone rave about the breakout band, or see their faces recently plastered across a trendy publication.

As one of those songs that I like to think would have blown up had it nabbed a cameo during a dramatic scene on The OC, "Blush" might have been written a few years too late. The haunting alt-rock ballad is equally carried by Ellie Roswell's pure and tiny croon, and some echoey, Band of Horses-reminiscent guitar chords. It's less upbeat than what they're doing on their forthcoming release and wasn't even a single, but deserves a shout-out for being one of the gorgeous songs that started it all.

Look out for My Love is Cool on June 23 via RCA.
