Wild Beasts are a band who continually push the boat out when it comes to their music. So it’s not such a surprise that their latest live video was done with an instrument of epic proportions: the venerated organ at London Royal Festival Hall comprising a whopping 7,866 pipes. The organ hasn’t seen any live action since 2005, so welcome its return to active duty with this performance of single ‘Wanderlust’ with Hayden Thorpe on the (organ) controls below. The single appears on the band’s fourth album ‘Present Tense’, released in February 2014.
Tom Fleming of the band recently lent his vocal talents to Emmy the Great’s ‘Swimming Pool’, whose promo we featured in November in this previous Video of the Moment post. Coverage on Wild Beasts on TGTF is here.
