Hayden Thorpe
Diviner

It was commendable that the Wild Beasts split up when they did but the concern is...what will happen to the other two? The singers should be ok. I assume the low-voiced one will make a solo album in time but first out the blocks is the high-voiced one also known as Hayden Thorpe. His voice is so distinctive that it's going to sound like the Wild Beasts but a listen to early tracks reveals a soft sophistication and haunted balladry.

One True Pairing
One True Pairing

Following lead singer Hayden Thorpe’s first solo effort Diviner earlier this year, now it’s the turn of co-vocalist Tom Fleming to make a musical statement following the split of Wild Beasts in 2018. A self-titled offering under the name One True Pairing, it’s radically different to most of what you’d associate with Fleming, full of dissonant guitars and political soul-searching that he describes as “neo-heartland rock”.

Wild Beasts
Last Night All My Dreams Came True

Wild Beasts, who’ve been bringing perverse arty falsetto weirdness to indie rock for more than a decade, are calling it a day. As part of their farewells they present Last Night All My Dreams Came True, a sort-of greatest hits that features new recordings of old material, recorded under live-in-the-studio conditions. They will be missed. On Domino.

Wild Beasts
Boy King

Sporting a sleek new logo and a slick new sound, Kendal's biggest ever export (bar the mint cake) are back with their increasingly commercially-aimed sound that might give the Hot Chip's and the Metronomy's a run for their money. Where they once sang "The messed bottom bunked bed of the dead, this fouled fallen nest, this dried up drooping breast, I hold my hips at this comic apocalypse, the world's a whoopee wibbling wantlingly on my crooked seat", they now sing "That's how I get my bang".   Yup, things change....and not for the better, sadly.

Wild Beasts
Two Dancers

The Wild Beasts stunning, mellow and beautiful second album Two Dancers. No-one who heard their screechy and lop-sided debut Limbo, Panto could have been ready for such excellence but Two Dancers delivered it in spades. Hayden Thorpe's voice had calmed down a bit, they stopped being quite as madcap and delivered a glacial and spectral album full of guitar-led beauty and romantic lyrical observations.

Wild Beasts
Limbo, Panto

"Now sing it in your normal voice and stop messing about". This is what a sound engineer said to shrill-voiced Wild Beasts co frontman Hayden Thorpe at a soundcheck for an early gig.  They did indeed sound very silly indeed at first but Limbo, Panto showed the first signs that they weren't a preposterous in-joke and actually had some rather lovely songs. It's their most angular and eccentric record for sure but it paves the way for the superb Two Dancers and shouldn't be underestimated.
