Wild Beasts have been hailed for some time now as one of the best new bands to watch out for. I, unfortunately, only discovered them earlier this week.
The group is called Wild Beasts and the song is called All The King’s Men…clearly, I had to listen just to see what it was about! One word to describe it – FABULOUS.
The band is relatively new (formed in 2002) in Kendal, England and just released their second album Two Dancers on Domino Records. The video for All The King’s Men is creepy yet enchanting at the same time, with the Beasts dressed as monks in some magical-type forest. For some strange reason, it reminds me of Keats’s La Belle Dame Sans Merci. Yes, I know, I am a nerd.
