Wild Beasts fourth album Present Tense came out earlier this year—a poignant, emotional, beautiful record and the band’s best yet—and now they’ve released a video for one of the album’s most immediate tracks, “Mecca.” Directed and animated by Kate Moross (videos for Jessie Ware, Arthur Beatrice etc), it’s a colorful, psychedelic accompaniment to the gorgeous song.
Wild Beasts are coming back to North America in July, including a free show at Pier 84 in New York.
