Wolf Alice may not have nabbed that Mercury Prize but they’re sure as hell stil having fun. Latest single ‘Freazy’ has always been the fun, easy going part of My Love is Cool and now with the release of its colourful video there’s a kind of out of body feeling that comes along with it too. Hazy vocals float atop a steady beat while melodies brush past you like air, alluding to a feeling of flying in the clouds, as if they’ve taken you from the ground to explore a new world. There’s an element of fantasy, particularly towards the end as the cartoon-like melody moves further into the foreground, adding a touch of magic and wonder while the video leaves you smiling at the splendour of the band members’ distorted appearances.
