This band makes beautiful music. Vocalist Hayden Thorpe has a passionate, warbly voice reminiscent of Antony Hegarty. The music however is more textural: part progressive pop, part ambient. It’s completely lovely and addictive. I guarantee you’ll get hooked.
Wild Beasts release their third LP Smother on May 9th on Domino Records.
