Wild Beasts

Trilling like a pair of songbirds stuck on a telephone wire, the operatic tension between Wild Beasts singers Hayden Thorpe and Tom Fleming is mere backdrop for a series of gossamer-soft songs about sexual ambiguity, small-town repression, and the inevitable booty calls in between. Known for their equally transfixing live appearances, they'll give the xx a run for UK hype—think of a sublime showdown between Maria Callas and Nina Simone, set to Echo and the Bunnymen. With Violens and Still Life Still.
