Wild Beasts still

One of the most dramatic, engrossing groups in the country, Wild Beasts' return is something to be cherished.

New album 'Present Tense' won overwhelming acclaim (Clash review HERE) with subsequent live shows demonstrating a palpable muscle.

New single 'A Simple Beautiful Truth' arrives on May 19th, with the accompanying video being shot up a Beacons mountain.

Directed by Klaus Thymann, the film maker offered the following explanation: "We were inspired enough by the absurdist approach taken by Talking Heads to don electric suits and dance in the ether on the top of a Beacons mountain. We wanted to capture the weightlessness of a song like A Simple Beautiful Truth, to attempt something so ridiculous as to be sublime. The experience was strangely liberating and we asked ourselves why we hadn't done this before."

Watch it now.
