Wild Beasts

It’s been a few years since Wild Beasts released the excellent Smother, and the Kendal, England four-piece are back with their fourth full-length, Present Tense, which is quite possibly their most streamlined effort to date. Recorded in London with producer and engineer Leo Abrahams (Brian Eno, Imogen Heap), the ambitious album is heavy with the band’s signature psychic weight as vocalist Hayden Thorpe’s falsetto, divisive and ethereal as ever, floats above his band’s grumbling, ‘80s- and ‘90s-indebted synths.
