Simple Beautiful Truth


Very little remains to be said about the ‘Present Tense’ album from Wild Beasts which hasn’t already been said elsewhere, except that (this time at least) it’s worthy of all the hype. Today see’s the release of a remix package for the foursome’s latest single ‘A Simple Beautiful Truth’, and while the finely executed remix from Lone has been getting plenty of attention elsewhere; Djrum has turned in another accomplished re-rendering after some previous sterling remix work for artists such as Synkro, Phaeleh, and Royce Wood Junior. Stripping back the original material into some warm, minimal tones and shuffling rhythms, it’s an exercise in ambience which contrasts the spacey, hip-hop, house style of the Lone interpretation, and the remix courtesy of Wild Beasts touring partner East India Youth, who grinds off a bit of the smooth feel of the track and adds thumping, building percussion. The remixes are available on white label vinyl direct from Domino.
