wild-beasts-a-simple-beautiful-truth
Wild Beasts’ first visual accompaniment to their latest release, Present Tense, came in the form of Wanderlust, a very dreamy narrative featuring four over-the-top characters and lots of running. Today, the band has given us a video for A Simple Beautiful Truth, which retains a bit of the dreaminess from their previous video, while limiting all movement to elegantly stuttered dance moves, and showcasing the electric-suit-sporting band as the only characters. It’s a rather serene moment, which seems to be exactly what they were going for.
 
Wild Beasts have also announced new tour dates which you can check out below the Laus Thymann-directed video.
