LAST NIGHT'S REVIEW: Wolf Alice, 02 Guildhall Southampton SOUTHAMPTON was submersed in musical symphonies as Wolf Alice rocked the O2 Guildhall.

Lead singer Ellie Rowsell serenaded the masses with her incredible vocals as the band smashed out all their hits.

The four-piece London band, who has sharply risen to prominence over the last two years, have a huge cult following, and they were treated to a full-on Tuesday night display.

Kicking off with new album Visions Of A Life opener Heavenward, followed quickly by heavy hit and favourite Yuk Foo, the lively sell-out Guildhall crowd were riled up and ready for a night to remember. While intimate light displays during Don't Delete the Kisses and Blush, off of their first same-titled EP, teased many to reach for the tissues as Rowsell showed her vocal range.

The group, of Rowsell (vocals and guitar), Joff Oddie (guitar and vocals), Theo Ellis (bass) and Joel Amey (drums and vocals), also played an array of hits from both their recent record and first album My Love Is Cool, including Beautifully Unconventional, Planet Hunter, Lisbon, Space & Time and Silk.

An encore including Giant Peach ended what was a memorable, intoxicating gig.

Support came from rockers Superfood and Sunflower Bean who played sets worthy of their own sell-out crowd.

The alternative rockers took to the Guildhall stage as part of a heavy European Tour in support of their new album.

The band’s debut album, My Love Is Cool, hit number two in the UK charts in June 2015 and number 12 on the Billboard Chart in the USA. They were nominated for the Mercury Music Prize, an Ivor Novello Award, a Brit Award for Breakthrough Act and a Grammy for Best Rock Performance, and took an NME Award for Best Live Band.

They criss-crossed the UK, USA, Australia, Japan and Europe on the mother of all two-year tours.
