There's no feeling more satisfying than when your favourite band releases a new album and it's absolutely killer. I have a LOT of favourite bands, but Wild Beasts are definitely special - their record 'Smother' is my favourite album of all time and their new album 'Boy King' is running pretty close even after only a few listens. For those who haven't heard of them before, I implore you to give them a try - both sonically and intellectually satisfying, their portrayal of gender and sexuality is just so interesting and no matter what direction they take musically, they always sound like themselves. New tracks 'Alpha Female', 'He The Colossus' and 'Eat Your Heart Out Adonis' in particular are sultry to say the least - maybe one for headphone time rather than in the company of your parents. 

Inspired by their fantastic comeback gig at my local Brundenell Social Club (which I reviewed for Counterfeit here), I thought I'd dig out my old 'Smother'-era tee for a simple summer outfit. Paired with these pink jeans I doubt I'm giving off many 'cool girl on tour' vibes, but I'm happy to admire from afar.
