Following the announcement of their forthcoming new album Boy King and the release of their first video and single for “Get My Bang,” Wild Beasts have shared a new video for “Big Cat,” the albums opening track. Shot on location at several locations outside of Barcelona and directed by Pablo Maestres, the video follows the band together through the Spanish countryside in a car, while being watched by a big brother type characters on surveillance cameras.
Lead vocalist Hayden Thorpe had the following to say about their new albums opening track:
“If ‘Get My Bang’ was a song of the id then ‘Big Cat’ is the ego. It marked a breakthrough in the writing process for the album, defining the swagger and attitude that would come to shape Boy King. He is all powerful, but at what price?”
Watch the video above now and pick up Boy King, set for release on August 5th via Domino Records.
