are from the UK, and "All the Kings Men," off their upcoming album Two Dancers
(out September 8th on Domino
) suggests a hint of the foreign, but mostly magic that pulses in the melody. Singer Hayden Thorpe's
voice is like a sorcerer's; mesmerizing, shifting shapes and pitches like the song itself, a progression that becomes difficult to escape from. But why would anyone want to? This sort of grandiose indie rock and genuine stitched pop resonates with a precious beauty.
Catch the Wild Beasts live on their CD release show in New York on September 8th at Joe's Pub, which is the first opportunity anyone has to see the band play in the US outside of Austin (Wild Beasts impressed and stole the hearts of plenty at their SXSW performance.) And, of course, download "All the Kings Men" if you're not yet familiar with a band with so much promise whispering from each line of the song. - Laura Yan
