Wild Beasts ‘Mecca’ (Official Video)
WILD BEASTS enigmatic sound and atmospheric beats are transformed into a kaleidoscopic trance for the official video for ‘Mecca’ from their forthcoming EP ‘Present Tense’.
The clip is a hypnotic pastiche of moving sounds and colours that unfold like a pastel acid trip. The tone of the beats are kept low and allow the stunning vocal chords of lead singer and falsetto master, Hayden Thorpe to shine through. Through image trickery, this video is one that is hard to keep your eyes from drifting away from your screen.
The oozing graphics and melting intergalactic themes make this clip memorable and mesmerising.
The combination of stunning lyrical work, lullaby-like vocals, and shifting graphics makes the clip for ‘Mecca’ one to completely lose your mind to. Honestly, this video is like squeezing a stress ball after one too many coffees. The artistry and the music will have you wanting more from this UK indie band.
With an impressive touring rap sheet that reads of spots at Glastonbury and supporting ARCADE FIRE, Wild Beasts are gracing our shores with a coveted spot on the Splendour In The Grass line up. Following this, the band will be touching down in Sydney and Melbourne to spread the love, and treat their fans to some incredible music.
