Why do we like this?

It's been more than a year-and-a-half since Wild Beasts released their last album Smother. Based out of England, it was the third album released by the band, and demonstrated that they weren't about to disappear into oblivion.

Around the same time I saw them at Coachella, where they put on one of my favorite performances. And practically no one was there to watch them! Perhaps that's because they don't have the most catchy, flare-worthy musical styling. Rather, they tend to focus on chilled out indie rock tracks with intricate arpeggio transitions. And that was perfect for Day 3 of a soul-grinding festival.

With that context, listening to this unreleased single "Stray" (which was recorded at the same time as their third album) is quite hitting the spot for me. Even if it is pretty slow and downtempo.
