Kendal, England's Wild Beasts have just released their third album, Smother, to what is pretty much worldwide acclaim. Known for their elaborate but spacious arrangements and the flabbergasting vocal techniques of the male alto Hayden Thorpe, Wild Beasts make music where the weird meets the gorgeous, the creepy meets the sexy and the devastating meets the inspirational. Their sophomore album, Two Dancers, was nominated for a Mercury Prize in 2009 and as a result they've secured a seat at the table with Britain's most respected and adored modern bands. Under the Radar caught up with the Wild Beast's multi-instrumentalist and other lead vocalist, Tom Fleming, to talk about Smother, masculinity, and the avant-garde.
