Single Review – Wild Beasts – Big Cat

With their fifth album Boy King arriving next month, Cumbria’s Wild Beasts have released their second single from what is expected to be another strong showing from the quartet off the back of Present Tense in 2014. ‘Big Cat’ is a song that continues the group on their dark electro-rock path from the album’s first single ‘Get My Bang’ with its smooth progressions and crisp instrumentation on top of that. Whirring, modulated synths act as the former and sharp riffs the latter. Hayden Thorpe’s tuneful utterances give the song an added fluidity and sense of effortlessness. The new smooth and slick Wild Beasts are a iteration that could reap the rewards later in the year.
