Listen: Wild Beasts - Sweet Spot

'Present Tense' preview emerges online...
Wild Beasts

Wild Beasts are changing.

The Kendal group went into the studio last year, occupied by an urgent desire to tackle new influences.

New album 'Present Tense' finds flecks of electronics invigorating the band's songwriting. Clash reviewer Daisy Jones awarded the album 8/10 and describes "the electronic evolution of ‘Present Tense’ captures their characteristically microscopic explorations of human interaction."

Well, judge for yourself. New track 'Sweet Spot' has emerged online, with glacial synths wrapping themselves around Hayden Thorpe's voice.

Check it out below.

Wild Beasts will release 'Present Tense' on February 24th. The band have confirmed the following shows:

March
26 Manchester Albert Hall
27 Glasgow Arches
29 Dublin Olympia
30 Bristol Academy 1
31 Cambridge Corn Exchange
