Wild Beasts’ fifth album is a Tinder-tastic display of carnal desire
I See A Darkness
One adjective that was overused about indie bands in the late-'80s was 'underachieving'....
Instead, as this compilation testifies, they sound like another dribbling bunch of indie pastiche brokers. 'Rise''s staccato drumming makes it quite engaging and 'World I Love' could be a more ragged Inspiral Carpets, but they're most successful with simple pleasures like 'Dust Remains', a winsome drip-pop ballad of mellow mournfulness. In fact, they'd be quite good at that sort of thing were it not for the fact Rob Sekula's tuneless voice makes you want to kick sand in his dewy eyes.
But if that's not enough for you, three appallingly recorded live tracks are tacked on the end as collectors' treats! Although, I defy you to sit through their reading of 'Interstellar Overdrive'...
