Wild Beasts are an indie rock band from the United Kingdom. Originally a duo by the name Fauve, they were founded in 2002 by Hayden Thorpe (guitar, vocals) and Ben Little (guitar). In 20104 the group was joined by drummer Chris Talbot and changed its name to Wild Beasts. After recording a self-titled EP, Tom Flemming was recruited as Wild Beasts’ bassist, and the band relocated to Leeds, where its energetic sound and Thorpe’s theatrical falsetto earned the group a dedicated local following. They released their first single, “Brave Bulging Buoyant Clairvoyants”, on Bad Sneakers Records in November 2006, and subsequently signed to Domino Records. They have released four acclaimed albums, Limbo, Panto in 2008, Two Dancers in 2009, Smother in 2011, and Present Tense in 2014. Two Dancers was nominated for the Mercury Prize. The band’s next album “Boy King”, will be released on the 5th of August 2016 .
