Wild Beasts are an acclaimed English indie band currently signed to Domino Records. The group formed in [[OopNorth Kendal]] as a duo of vocalist/multi-instrumentalist Hayden Thorpe and guitarist Benny Little. Taking their name from the Fauvism art movement of the early 20th century (fauve meaning "wild beast" in French), they relocated to the far less remote city of Leeds where they were eventually joined by fellow Cumbrians Chris Talbot (drums) and Tom Fleming (bass, vocals, multi-instrumentation).

From the beginning a lot of attention was drawn towards Thorpe's peculiar vocals - which can be best summed up as an operatic falsetto prone to becoming heavily strained and throaty - that initially led to the group being dismissed as LoveItOrHateIt. However, the whimsical yet provocative nature of their songwriting, reverb-drenched guitars and tight rhythm section received favourable comparisons to Music/TheSmiths. After signing to Domino the band recorded their debut album, 2008's ''Limbo, Panto'' with Music/FranzFerdinand producer Tore Johannson, and was very much a showcase for these eccentricities.
