Obviously Hayden Thorpe's singing is outstanding but for me, it's all about Tom Fleming's voice. I'm not even sure I can really explain what it is about that makes it stand out for me. I guess maybe while Thorpe's voice is incredibly beautiful, Fleming's voice is more intimate, more compelling. It feels like there's a history there. In any case, they make for a stunning combination. I've only recently discovered Wild Beasts but the more I listen to them, the more I love the songs. They also played a fantastic set at the Forbidden Fruit Festival in Dublin recently which cemented them even further as a band to watch out for.
The boys earn bonus points in the following video for exceedingly jaunty outfits.
