Wild Beasts have only gone and dropped another slice of indelible indie-pop goodness ahead of the release of their forthcoming new album Boy King. ‘Big Cat’, the follow up single to ‘Get My Bang’, is the opening track of new LP, which is out on August 5th via Domino.
Featuring something of a thinly-veiled poke at the inevitable socio-political landscape of the near future, the video was shot in several locations outside of Barcelona and directed by Pablo Maestres. There’s a bloody big wolf too. Wonder what that could possibly refer to, eh?
In a press release, Hayden Thorpe said the track “marked a breakthrough in the writing process for the album, defining the swagger and attitude that would come to shape Boy King. He is all powerful, but at what price?”
Indeed. See it below.
