Wolf Alice tone it down massively here on ‘The Last Man On Earth‘. Furthermore, the mix is relatively condensed, with a piano and vocal taking the lead for the most part. The group chill out that much here that a new fan would be mind-blown when coming across their more edgy style heard on other previous tracks. Nevertheless, although very solemn for the most part, it does pick up towards the latter with a thunderous rhythm that crashes through the speakers. But it would have been nice to have this ZEST before; there is too much doom and gloom in the world; we need more energy and bite at the moment.
My first impression of ‘The Last Man On Earth‘ is comme ci comme ça. I have been reading and hearing many accolades for this track before listening, and I was expecting something even more colossal. I was planning to get my socks blown off from the very listen, but they are still on, and I would hate to write a review of false feeling to sit at the popular opinion table. It is not a bad release, but I do not know if it is a new wheel. It seems to take hints from many sources, and I have come across similar-sounding tracks previously, which rarely got a look in at the top.
Nevertheless, vocally, lead singer Ellie Rowsell oozes confidence with her infectious tones gliding through the airwaves with flavour. She has a nail-biting manner, and her theatrical delivery pays off.
