Followup to the British band’s
acclaimed 2009 platter.
Wild Beasts’ third album, Smother, drops May 10 on Domino Records. It’s the followup to the
Mercury-nominated and critically acclaimed Two Dancers (reviewed here at BLURT).
Born out of an
intense six-week period of writing in East London and a month recording in
remote Wales, Smother was co-produced by the Kendal
four-piece with long term collaborator Richard
Formby. An album, we are advised, of “intense atmosphere, space and
beguiling rhythm,” Smother has ten songs that “linger in the memory, each track pulsing with sensuality… bold,
textured and romantic a deeply personal and immensely affecting record.”
Well, all right
then! Keep your eyes peeled; we’ll have a full preview soon.
