The new Wild Beasts track is a pure indietronica delight. With swimming synth pulsations, and a highly unusual tempo beat, ‘Wanderlust’ is full of poetic lyrics, poking fun at British bands singing in American accents. The tuneful choral background vocals add a layer of urgency, which is accompanied by a music video depicting four characters running against a stark, colourless backdrop while increasingly restrictive obstacles and weather gets in their way.
With the distinctive falsetto voice of Hayden Thorpe loved and hated by all, Wild Beasts’ songwriting abilities are unquestionably brilliant. Wanderlust is no exception. To book tickets for their upcoming EU/US/UK tour, go to their website.
