The video for the single “Albatross” off the impending third record, Smother, from English band Wild Beasts is now available for viewing. The video is artfully filmed by Dave Ma focusing on an attractive, tortured female dancer while Wild Beasts look on from some kind of outside viewing station. It seems as though this beautiful dancer is a patient in an institution of some kind until her room switches to a kind of photo shoot back drop. Digital music permeates the song with serene, chorus like vocals in the background. In the video, you can see the lips of the Wild Beasts members moving, but exactly what they are singing is indistinguishable. The music is pretty and the video is abstract and captivating with lovely lighting and costumes but once it’s over the experience feels unrequited. Maybe a listen to the record as a whole is needed to be fully satisfied.
