Wolf Alice and the Giant Peach

Headbanging rock outfit Wolf Alice are gearing up for the release of their debut album, My Love Is Cool - and to celebrate finishing the record, they've bunged a new track up online.

Giant Peach is very, very clearly an album track - but what a magnificent racket it makes. Full-throated screaming and door-slamming riffs abound and, while it's not my normal cup of tea, the blend is superlative.

To paraphrase C+C Music Factory: "Everybody mosh now."

The band's larynx-shredding frontwoman Ellie Roswell gave me one of my favourite Glastonbury interviews of 2014. Here's the best bit.

What's on your rider?

Hummus. That's it. We're a modest band. We just want hummus and we're happy.

Not even some bread to mop it up?

No, we just use our fingers.

Doesn't that make the instruments sticky?

No. It just means that when you get hungry on stage you can just lick your strings.
