Boomkat Product Review:
Following the widely acclaimed 'Two Dancers', 'Smother' is Kendal band Wild Beasts next attempt at the mainstream, and luckily they have managed yet another full-length without properly succumbing to the mainstream. Their drive is as propulsive as ever, and the electronic pop sheen that graced 'Two Dancers' is back in full force, almost taking them into Cold Cave's coveted nu-wave zone. The Beasts always had a sense of indie-rock about them though, and their distinct Britishness really stops them from placing two hands on the current cold wave fetishism. There are real British songs here, and while they smoulder with a wrought sexuality there is always a pointed shyness that gives a hint of their location. Good stuff yet again, let's hope this one won't be pipped to that Mercury prize another time eh?
