Downtown Miami was bathed in a pink, neon glow last week as the 1975 dazzled fans at the Bayfront Park amphitheater as part of their North American tour. Joining them were their Dirty Hit Records labelmates, The Japanese House and Wolf Alice. While this was a reunion of friends for the artists, for fans on this side of the pond, it meant exposure to new bands they may not have heard before.
I was put on to Wolf Alice’s music early on in their career as they were signed to RCA Records while I was a Sony Music college rep. “Bros” was, and still is, my jam so we were stoked to see them.
The band went on shortly after sunset, and had an awesome stage presence with singer Ellie Roswell sailing the ship. They played a 30 minute set, starting with a brief intro, then “Your Loves Whore.”They soon led into “You’re a Germ” and their single “Bros,” with many members of the audience singing along. The band then played”90 Mile Beach” which was fitting given the venue overlooks Miami’s bay and downtown area. This was followed by “Giant Peach” and closing with “Moaning Lisa Smile.”
Catch Wolf Alice on their remaining dates with The 1975 in the U.S. and Canada, then in Europe later this summer. In the meantime, you can listen to them below. Enjoy!
