Here’s the thing: you’re under no obligation to like One Direction – what you can’t do is escape them. At this point you’ve probably heard Steal My Girl about 700 times. So you wonder what else could possibly be done with the track? The answer is give it to Wolf Alice and marvel at how they’ve turned the pop banger into a shoegaze-y lullaby. It sounds like an angry person yelling not at but IN a cloud of fuzzy guitar riffs. It’s everything the original song wasn’t, in the best way possible.
