Wild Beasts

While many emerging bands such as Passion Pit and Bon Iver have become known for their overpowering falsettos. The haunting vocals of Wild Beast's lead singer, Hayden Thorpe, have been compared to more classically trained opera performers than these indie artists. Their latest album "Two Dancers" is a beautifully assembled album with many layers of his vocal howls. This quartet of friends from London have created an album comparable to Grizzly Bear's "Veckatimest". With this sophomore release the band has grown in a way that surely will keep them around for some time to come.
