Wild Beasts Share Video For “Palace”

Wild Beasts Share their new Video For "Palace" Wild beasts play their next show 11/5 V-Hall, in Seoul, South Korea

Wild Beasts have shared a video for “Palace,” from 2014’s Present Tense, which premiered yesterday. The video was filmed by Alex Turvey. Singer Tom Fleming explains the concept behind the video:

“The idea was to match the feel of a cheap game show with the content of a rather cruel psychological experiment. The content was unknown to us before the shoot; we were kept in a closed room until we were filmed, one by one, in a single take. What you see is us being introduced to the content for the first time and our genuine reactions to the objects and people involved. We wanted to make something that felt like an event and a sort of project, rather than what passes for a traditional music video.”

Present Tense – Special Edition, featuring the original album augmented by a bonus disc of remix material from artists including Factory Floor, Juan Atkins, Lone, East India Youth, Sohn as well as a brand new remix of “Palace” from Foals,
