8/10

Following on from their 2015 debut My Love Is Cool, Yuk Foo is the first single to be released from UK rockers Wolf Alice’s upcoming sophomore LP Visions Of Life.

With My Love Is Cool being known for its soft emotional pieces entwined with more grunged out tracks, Yuk Foo follows on from that wild side of the album with vocalist Ellie Rowsell cutting across the dissonantly, jarring instrumentation in a fury of cynical screamed out lyrics.

With a distinct tone of frustration being felt from the track, it’s an anthem for those who have been disenfranchised for things big or small. Vicious, crazed and unrelenting – it is this side of Wolf Alice where the temptation for madness makes the band truly ascend.

Whether Yuk Foo is indicative of a more tenacious tone for the band’s second album Visions Of A Life is something we are yet to see. But for those who are fans of Wolf Alice’s wild side, then this single certainly shows promise.
