Wild Beasts | RUG329 | Released: 19/07/09
Hooting & Howling - the brand new single from Wild Beasts, released on 20th July 2009 – is a perfect introduction to the tightrope-high drama and shimmering wonder of the forthcoming second album from the Leeds based four-piece. Two Dancers, the follow up to last year’s critically acclaimed debut Limbo, Panto, is due for release on 3rd August 2009.
Hooting & Howling is equal parts statement of intent and the celebration of a state of mind. A staring match between Hayden Thorpe's falsetto at its most lascivious and Benny Little's "equally elegant and ugly" (to quote the song) guitar, it builds into a tangible sense of pleasure and chaos.
Hooting & Howling will be available on 500 numbered limited edition 10” Pink vinyl (RUG329) and via digital download (RUG329D).
