Wild Beasts are a graceful, elegant venture.
New album 'Present Tense' is a case in point, with its wonderfully widescreen songwriting matched to lyrics which probe sexuality and the nature of individuality.
Yet the band can also play it simple. At heart, Wild Beasts are buoyed by a gorgeous melodic sense, one which is both seductive and effortlessly simple.
So, y'know, a Miley Cyrus cover isn't out-with the realms of possibility. Dropping past New York music shop Other Music for an in-store, Wild Beasts breezed through 'Wrecking Ball'.
The audience initially react with muffled laughter, but the sincerity of the delivery soon wins them over.
