Come to Wild Beasts

“Plaything” from Wild Beasts’ latest album, Smother, hunts to devour and salvage. “We're very Britsh and we talk about sex a lot,” Ben Little chuckles. Indeed: British Cultural and literary references abound. (Just look to Samual Taylor Coleridge in “Albatross” and Mary Shelley in “Bed of Nails“)

The band's composition rows in unison. The percussion narrates the lyrics, for instance, while the singing translates the guitar. The reason the band “blends” so well is because they’ve known each other for over ten years and playing together is what they do.

Wild Beasts are on a North American Tour, and will be playing Atlanta, Georgia tonight. More dates:
