The sophomore album from Leeds band Wild Beasts was an eccentric triumph (as we reported in our September issue), and "All The King's Men", the sophomore single from it, is also their strongest yet.
Somehow simultaneously channelling Elbow and Bronski Beat, it's a little bit clever, and a little pervy. Perfect. We also dig the Wicker-Man-if-it-had-been-directed-by-Sofia-Coppola video.
"All The King's Men" is out on 5 October (Domino) www.myspace.com/wildbeasts
