Much of the joy to be found in the dippy, quixotic and downright oddness of Wild Beasts is… just that. Evoking a time of British music that didn’t require strobe-lit music videos or the affections of trowel-haired Channel 4 presenters (some call it A Better Age), the Leeds-based foursome sound like music hall on mushrooms inexpertly fed through an auto harp covered in strawberry jam. ‘Assembly’ wobbles and churns, all the while smiling gamely at its own ridiculous world. And, as such, deserves to be the best single this week that sells less that Leona Lewis.
