Wild Beasts return with their third full length, entitled SMOTHER. Their last album TWO DANCERS was critically acclaimed and even earned them a nomination in the prestigious Mercury Awards. A year and a half later, SMOTHER reveals a much more mature band. They've kept their distinct sound intact: oscillating falsetto and baritone vocals, lyrical wit, and a penchant for seedier topics. However, this new album incorporates rich electronic textures and a subtlety of melody not heard in their earlier work.
