Watch the new video below for 'A Simple Beautiful Truth' from Wild Beasts most recent studio album, Present Tense

The band discusses their inspiration behind the video, filmed by Klaus Thymann:

"We were inspired enough by the absurdist approach taken by Talking Heads to don electric suits and dance in the ether on the top of a Beacons mountain. We wanted to capture the weightlessness of a song like 'A Simple Beautiful Truth,' to attempt something so ridiculous as to be sublime. The experience was strangely liberating and we asked ourselves why we hadn't done this before."

After performing sold out US release shows earlier this year in New York and Los Angeles, we're happy to announce a July North American headlining tour dates that includes Pitchfork Music Festival in Chicago, IL.
