Mercury Prize nominated Kendal band Wild Beasts' are back with a new single 'Albatross' as well as forthcoming album 'Smother'.
The video for 'Albatross' was shot in a London location by distinctive director Dave Ma, David also shot the 'This Momentary' video for Delphic. The video uses stark, dream-like imagery which captures the abstract mood of the song and conjures feelings of loss.
