Song of the Day: Wild Beasts – All The Kings Men (08.10.2011)

Published on October 17th, 2011

So on of my favorite websites that I bang on and on about lead me to discover this band (thank you daytrotter.com). I completely fell in love with this song, however in a very different form. The daytrotter version of the song is raw, stripped back and pure, but with an intangible buoyancy. The vocals rose and fell in the most enchanting way.

Then much much later on I decided to stop listening to the daytrotter version and join the multitude of society in the real world. I ran out got their album and listen to the original. And it was golden. The layers and the drops just built on the raw splendour of the song that I already knew and loved so well. There was a different type of positiveness to it, more boisterous than before but more hidden shadows to the song.

Make sure you check out both versions, they offer something so different each time.
