New Wild Beasts Video: "All The King's Men"



We've been enjoying the new Wild Beasts album, Two Dancers (9/8 Domino), immensely. It's certainly a grower, but its dark and subtle melodies have a certain gauzy softness to them that after several listens, becomes extremely repeatable. Wild Beasts fall somewhere between The Veils, Depeche Mode and The National, with the baritone vocals and somber English sentiment. Pitchfork gave Two Dancers best new music last week and today debuts the first video from the record "All The King's Men." The video is a bizarre medieval cruise through the woods that is, honestly, pretty perfect for the haunting nature of the song. Enjoy.
