Kendal mint mates

Kendal band Wild Beasts are another British band having a smashing 2014. The release of their fourth studio album, Present Tense in February saw the indie rock quartet enjoy critical success and hook in plenty of new fans along the way. Peaking at No. 10 in the UK charts, it is the band’s biggest LP to date, even out performing their Music Music Prize nominated Two Dancers (2009).

Recorded in London and Bath, Present Tense, was the result of the band taking a fresh approach to music creation. They teamed up with new producers and took a break from a heavy touring schedule to craft a dramatic album that is typically pinpoint in the level of drama it creates. The unmistakable sound of frontman Hayden Thorpe’s heavenly falsetto remains along with their keenly aimed barbs at cultural fakery and politics.
