Wild Beasts – Smother (music)

it means all that the heart requires
is what it can’t compromise

One week ago today I listened to the new Wild Beasts album, entitled Smother, during a nearly perfectly long ride on the metro. Besides being an excellent album, it represents a subtle but significant change for Wild Beasts from their previous: While polishing the sound and style they established with Two Dancers, the new album also delivers a very different emotional core which is at the same time melancholy and hopeful. All told, Smother represents a subtly jarring evolution of the band’s style ambitions. I’ve reproduced one track below… if the opportunity presents itself I also would suggest catching them live, they give an enchanting performance.
