Dreamliner Boy King is Wild Beasts’ most direct and vital collection to date. Where 2014’s Present Tense found the band in reflective mood, absorbing a fascination with online culture and electronic music, Boy King has them, as Tom Fleming puts it, back to being pissed off.

Boy King is the fifth and final studio album by Wild Beasts, released on 5 August 2016 through Domino Records. Boy King is a concept album dealing with the self-destructive effects of modern-day masculinity. The album has more of a heavier sound, featuring distorted synths, compressed drum machine-like beats and guitar solos, marking a big departure from the band's soft yet dramatic art pop sound, which was featured on their past four albums.

Boy King is that most satisfying of things. A daring step in a fresh direction that comes off beautifully. It’s a lascivious, muscular record, pulsing with crunching guitars and Hayden Thorpe’s prodigious falsetto. Big Cat, Get My Bang, and He the Colossus are the taut and slithery bangers, while closer Dreamliner -gorgeous and operatic-serves to highlight the far-reaching talents of a very special band. Boy King Wild Beasts. The UK art-rock outfit’s brilliant new album. Boy King is that most satisfying of things.

Wild Beasts' Boy King replaces the ornate detail of its predecessors with machine-tooled funk and pitch-shifted gasps. It's by no means a disaster, but it is a disappointment. So it’s odd that their fifth album arrives with co-frontman Hayden Thorpe telling reporters, We’ve become the band we objected to being : The swaggering American rockers that they rebelled against in their schooldays. During a period of heartbreak, Thorpe realized that he’s just as bad as the macho beefcakes they’ve often lampooned, and saw two possible paths stemming from the electronic intricacy of their last record: lab-coat music, or to don the leather jackets and embrace the chaos and carnal force of rock‘n’roll, he said. And it was always going to be the leather jackets route.

Boy King' is strikingly brave as it attempts to do away with much of this trademark charisma, stripping the characters who populate this world down to their ugly base primal urges; this is the first Wild Beasts album where the audience isn't always rooting for a song's protagonist.
