    Wild Beasts - "Wanderlust"

    Arty indie-rock types Wild Beasts are back after almost three years with a new album, and just as they have done between previous records, the UK band's sound seems to have evolved since 2011's gorgeous Smother. Hayden Thorpe's angelic falsetto is still front and center, but what stands out most about the first single is the pretty overtly political themes. One song in, and I'm already excited for the new album. - Constant Gardner
