Wild Beasts- 'Hooting & Howling'

. Tuesday, June 9

"A crude art, a bovver boot ballet - equally elegant and ugly.
I was as thrilled as I was appalled, courting him in fisticuffing waltz.
Now I’m not saying the lads always deserve a braying.
And I’m not saying the girls are worth the fines I’m paying.
We’re just brutes bored in our bovver boots. We’re just brutes clowning ‘round in cahoots. We’re just brutes looking for shops to loot. We’re just brutes hoping to have a hoot…
Hooting, hooting and howling."

Last year Wild Beasts provided the Single of the Year with 'Devil's Crayon' and lo and behold they might just go and do it again for 2009 with 'Hooting and Howling'. More accessible whilst still beautifully eccentric the Kendal band have channeled all their awkward charm into a poetic masterpiece that boasts stunning lyrics and a less off putting vocal delivery. Word on the street is that the bands second album 'Two Dancers' is a masterpiece and 'Hooting and Howling' certainly hints at great things to come. I could read those lyrics all day long....
