It’s an exciting day when you can announce not one but TWO new roster additions, and that day is today. We’re happy to say that both London’s Wolf Alice and Amusement are now both part of the Two Tap Digital family. So here’s a quick introduction to both:
Croydon based Amusement have come a long way in the past 12 months. Having initially being conceived as the duo of Andrew Smith and Joe Sigee, their initial demos and remixes garnered praise from Huw Stephens, Rob Da Bank, NME, The Quietus, The Line Of Best Fit, RCRD LBL, XLR8R, Abeano and many more.
Since then, they’ve focussed on building a formidable live show and procured the services of drummer Ulysses Alvarez and bass player Holly Hardy whilst supporting the likes of King Krule, Arthur Beatrice, Gabriel Bruce and Niki & The Dove to name but a few.
Their new track, ‘King Of The World’, is a perfect display of their continued class and premiered on Monday via Noisey.
Wolf Alice consist of Ellie Rowsell, Joel Amey and Joff. Joff’s huge mancrush on Willy Mason had him and Ellie playing folk music out and about in North London. It was only when they met Joel, with his real ray bans and huge collars, that they decided to ditch the acoustic guitar and learn a thing or two about rock ‘n’ roll. Now they play head banging psychofreak poprock, keeping the sensitive lyrics and sharp melodies that had already got them a fair crowd at their gigs. The DIY aspect of Wolf Alice combined with an almost haunting intelligence makes for “the most charming band since Busted”.
They have a string of live dates coming up and premiered ‘Leaving You’, which (again) you can hear above, on NME.
