"Hooting & Howling" is equal parts statement of intent and the celebration of a state of mind. A staring match between Hayden Thorpe's falsetto at its most lascivious and Benny Little's "equally elegant and ugly" (to quote the song) guitar, it builds into a tangible sense of pleasure and chaos. It's the first single from the Wild Beasts' new album, Two Dancers, available in the US on September 8th.
