Published May 15, 2007Before brand new Domino signings Wild Beasts get to flaunt their deal with the all-powerful indie label, they're first fulfilling a contract with UK indie Bad Sneakers. New single "Through Dark Night" is the sort of anthem that graced high school gymnasiums before Beatlemania struck 40-some odd years ago, with it's simple harmonies and good-natured swing. The jangly guitars build the sort of swoony romantic setting that Marty McFly's mum was pining for and looking to seduce her son in during Back to the Future. Front-man Hayden's voice squirms in between a lovely falsetto and a cracking grunt, which sets up a most unusual contrast. It doesn't take a genius to see why Domino scooped these wonders up.
