Wild Beasts have unveiled the video for “A Simple Beautiful Truth”, the latest single off their album Present Tense, released in February. Directed by Klaus Thymann, the clip features members of the UK indie pop outfit dressed shiny jumpsuits and getting down in the Brecon Beacons mountain range of Wales. The concept was inspired by the king of pop absurdity, David Byrne.
“We were inspired enough by the absurdist approach taken by Talking Heads to don electric suits and dance in the ether on the top of a Beacons mountain,” the band said in a statement. “We wanted to capture the weightlessness of a song like ‘A Simple Beautiful Truth’, to attempt something so ridiculous as to be sublime. The experience was strangely liberating and we asked ourselves why we hadn’t done this before.”
