Pohoda 2020 will welcome WOLF ALICE, another Mercury prize winner!
The Guardian described their refreshing indie-rock as an innovative contemporary approach to the genres of the 1990s such as grunge and shoegaze. The holders of two NME Awards and the Q Award for the best live band have released two albums and according to the British media, they were both parts of the best that came out in those years. The great debut My Love Is Cool was, in terms of awards and reviews, outperformed by album Visions of a Life, after which Rhian Daly of NME called them 100% best band in Britain.
The London Indie rock band started out as an acoustic duo of singer Ellie Rowsell and guitarist Joff Oddie. They were joined by bassist Theo Ellis and drummer Joel Amey in 2012. In 2013 they released singles “Fluffy” and “Bros”, as well as their debut EP Blush. In half a year, they added another EP, Creature Songs.
In June 2015, they released their debut My Love Is Cool, which came second in the UK charts and ninth in the US Billboard Alternative Songs Chart. The album was nominated for both Mercury Prize and Grammy in the Best Rock Performance category. It also made it to the top ten albums of 2015 in the NME, Q, Drowned in Sound, and Under the Radar yearly selections.
Recently, they have confirmed their quality as headliners at the Pilton Party, which is annually organised by Glastonbury (last year it was headlined by Liam Gallagher). NME said that the band left the audience without any doubt that the headliner slot is exactly where they belong in the line-up. We believe that WOLF ALICE will leave similar impressions on the Pohoda 2020 visitors as well.
