Wolf Alice really blew us away with their performance of “Sadboy” on Thursday night’s (November 30) episode of The Late Show With Stephen Colbert. The song appears on their latest release, Visions Of A Life. It was produced by Justin Meldal-Johnsen (Nine Inch Nails,, Paramore, Beck).
While appearing with Beats 1’s Matt Wilkinson, lead singer Ellie Rowsell said, “I kind of wanted to make one of those head out the window on a long drive tunes. And I wanted to try my hand at like a hold-nothing-back love song. That was my thoughts. But other than that I just kinda let it go where it wanted to go… I just think if you hold back it will sound worse won’t it?”.
