Dancing & Howling,
This review is from: Two Dancers (Audio CD)
Two Dancers, follows quickly from Wild Beats' debut last year. The sign of a class act is a band that delivers on promise and believe me the promise of debut Limo Panto has been kept - with ribbons, kisses, bells, whistles and the incredible sound of a band soaring: Two Dancers.
Hayden Thorpe's falsetto is now an instrument of great emotive strength. Lyrically there seems to be a theme of excitement and despair at the possibilities at the heart of the night. How two dancers (the name of 2 tracks as well as the LP) can meet, get togther, and tear each other apart.
Tom Fleming sings 2 or 3 songs (sorry I heard it three times last night and am using my memory) one of which listed a run of provincial British towns and the girls that can be found there. Think the polar opposite to laddism though, this is Queen Is Dead territory, v late adolescence turning into adulthood, beauty and despair and music to match.
Musically Two Dancers confirms Wild Beats as the boldest band in the UK.
You might well hear it on the radio, you might well not, whatever you categorically should hear it asap.
