Boomkat Product Review:
Returning for a second album on Domino, Leeds band Wild Beasts have managed to retain all the theatricality and sonic eccentricity that made their debut LP Limbo, Panto so unique. 'The Fun Powder Plot' finds boy-soprano Hayden Thorpe singing the expression "booty call" in a voice that would surely be more at home in the midst of some Gilbert & Sullivan. Musically, this opener plunges us back into the band's familiarly janglesome mathro-beat landscape, but this time with added edge - or better put: Edge - on the guitars. During the splendid single 'Hooting And Howling' the band sound like U2 as fronted by the last castrato singer, Alessandro Moreschi. It's this very odd - though by no means awkward - combination of stadium rock guitars and vocal operatics that defines Wild Beasts' idiosyncratic music, and on Two Dancers they're starting to sound far less like a novelty, instead revealing themselves as one of Britain's more intelligent, individualistic bands, as underlined by superb concoctions like 'We Still Got The Taste Dancing On Our Tongues', All The King's Men' and 'The Empty Nest'. Highly recommended.
