Wild Beasts have embraced their ravishing dark side. It works.



Filthy-banger



Something happened to Wild Beasts. Between 2014’s ‘Present Tense’ and now, they’ve been through an, erm, awakening of sorts. That’s the best way to describe ‘Get My Bang’ - a track best described as complete and utter filth.

The first taster of new album ‘Boy King’, it’s the sound of a band discovering a new level - not just of depravity, either. Bold, brave, immediate and drenched in its own sweat, it’s less an evolution and more the embracing of the beating black heart that lies beneath. Fully engulfed in the dark side, Wild Beasts are more alluring than ever before.

Be it the claustrophobic tension of Nine Inch Nails or the sleazier underbelly of St. Vincent, the touchstones are fearsomely strong, but this is unmistakably them. As Hayden Thorpe thrusts his way through the night (there’s an image for you - Ed), the realisation becomes obvious - these is the anti-heroes Wild Beasts were destined to become. Creatures of the night, they’ve come to corrupt your soul. Give in, you know you want to.[sc name="stopper" ]
