EDITORS’ NOTES

The Kendal band emerge revitalised on a record about sex, apocalypse and love. The gothic-tinged opener “Wanderlust” finds Wild Beasts celebrating themselves and the places they go that no-one else dares—like “Daughters”, where Tom Fleming envisions bloody retribution from Britain's young women. Meanwhile, Hayden Thorpe's songs elevate sex to salvation—searching for the “Sweet Spot” and “A Simple Beautiful Truth”, a plainly gorgeous, airy funk number.
