Wild Beasts have shared a new video for “Palace,” a track off of their latest album Present Tense, which was released earlier this year. The video sees the band members playing in the center of a colorful circle as different elements are introduced via a spotlight. “The idea of the video was to match the feel of a cheap game show with the content of a rather cruel psychological experiment. The content was unknown to us before the shoot; we were kept in a closed room until we were filmed, one by one, in a single take,” the band explained in a Facebook post. “What you see is us being introduced to the content for the first time and our genuine reactions to the objects and people involved. We wanted to make something that felt like an event and a sort of project, rather than what passes for a trad music video.” Watch below.
Present Tense is out now on Domino.
