Wild Beasts Share Video For “A Simple Beautiful Truth,” Announce Tour

    Wild Beasts have shared a video for the track “A Simple Beautiful Truth” from their 2014 release Present Tense. The Klaus Thymann-directed video has the band is some shiny suits, accented with neon and lights, dancing around on a hillside. 

    According to Pitchfork the band said the following about the video: “We were inspired enough by the absurdist approach taken by Talking Heads to don electric suits and dance in the ether on the top of a Beacons mountain. We wanted to capture the weightlessness of a song like ‘A Simple Beautiful Truth’, to attempt something so ridiculous as to be sublime. The experience was strangely liberating and we asked ourselves why we hadn’t done this before.”

    Absurd it is. Watch the video and see their just announced tour dates below.
