Video of the Moment #133: Wild Beasts

By on Wednesday, 16th September 2009 at 10:00 am

My first experience hearing this song from Wild Beasts, ‘All the King’s Men’, was on the 3rd of September edition of Lammo’s Roundtable on BBC 6music, and to be honest, I thought this was one weird-sounding song and I couldn’t see it going anywhere.

Fast forward a week, and I’ve now had the benefit of seeing the video the band has filmed to go with this, the second single from ‘Two Hearts’. It begins like an ethereal dream, with pretty maidens in white dresses, described by their record label as “an ode to Girls from Rodean, girls from Shipley, girls from Hounslow, and girls from Whitby“. And how does it end you ask? Press play below and find out.


‘All the King’s Men’, the second single from Wild Beasts’ ‘Two Hearts’ album, will be released on Domino Records in the UK on 5 October.
