A much hyped band from Englandâs Lake District, Wild Beasts come to Exit07 as part of the CongĂ©s AnnulĂ©s programme courtesy of den Atelier.
Wild Beasts have come a long way from forming at school in their native town of Kendall in England’s beautiful Lake District. Back in 2007 the band was tipped as one of the top ten artists to watch by NME. Four albums later and Wild Beasts are playing Glastonbury and enjoying critical acclaim for latest recording Present Tense, which reached no.10 in the UK album charts. The album saw the band delve into electronica, further enhancing their reputation as purveyors of a retro 80s sound.
Indeed, the usually reliable Dave Simpson of The Guardian, writing about a show in Manchester’s majestic Albert Hall earlier this year, said that the addition of synthesizers “has given them a grace and grandeur reminiscent of Japan or Talk Talk.”
