“Albatross” embodies the spirit of Wild Beasts’ third album in its tone and texture. Its layers of abstract sounds are combined to form something typically bold and unique. The single sees the band shed their old skin for a fresh blueprint, combining their distinctive vocal, piano and guitar driven melodies with lush electronic sounds. It is Wild Beasts delving deeper, finding a music even more intimate and personal. As Thorpe says, it shows them “empowered and emboldened.“
Fans can download “Albatross” free on Wednesday, March 9th from the Wild Beasts’ Facebook page.
