Video of the Moment #2289: Wild Beasts

By on Thursday, 9th February 2017 at 6:00 pm

Wild Beasts released ‘Boy King’, their fifth studio album to date, last summer. The LP was another strong showing from the Kendal band who appear not to be slowing down at all, despite being an indie band who have proven to have quite good longevity and staying power. ‘Alpha Female’ is their latest video from the release last year. Naturally, as the title of the song suggests, the band turned to ‘the fairer sex’, following ladies in Bangalore, India on…wait for it…their skateboards. India has become more progressive over the years of course, but seeing young ladies in colourful saris on wheels and at night at skateparks can’t be what comes to mind when you envision girls in India. I know I don’t. Yet these are such powerful images of strength and enpowerment. Watch the music video for ‘Alpha Female’ below.
