I think. There's something about the theatrics of both bands and the overall 'aura' that makes me a bit surprised how well Wild Beasts have done and that The Irrepressibles haven't really made any impact.
I'd say the Irrepressibles album has a much stronger set of songs than any particular Wild Beasts songs, although thats subjective. However I think that wild beasts fans would love tracks like;
although the first of the three isn't too close to wild beasts' overall sound i think there is a similar vibe.
so, Wild Beasts fans; what do you think of The Irrepressibles? Or are you a fan of both already?
Or, if you'd prefer, whats one new band you think people would love if they liked a band getting similar coverage/positive press to Wild Beasts at the moment?
