Through Dark Night
Through Dark Night, the second chapter to Wild Beasts as yet un-finished first novel, is a child like pick-me-up of pop song professing purity and nightly neediness. This big-boned bare-fleshed beauty spreads from the soppy, to the silly, to the sexy, in one tender motion. The single will be released on April 23rd 2007.
Hailing from Kendal, Cumbria, and now based in Leeds, the four boys of Wild Beasts aren't concerned with being of the modern, or being of the renaissance, being baggy pantsed or being tight pantsed, being in a scene or being in a place. Wild Beasts' music just is.
Bad Sneakers Records is the record label from the club night of the same name at The Faversham in Leeds, renowned for championing new music. They have already released the acclaimed debut single by Wild Beasts - Brave Bulging Buoyant Clairvoyants (which saw the band snapped up by Domino Records for future releases), two singles by The Sugars and 2 singles by The Acutes.
