Stream two brand new tracks - and download one of 'em - from the tQ favourites, and take a look at their GIF-novel, those modern chaps

Kendal-hailing four-piece Wild Beasts have released two brand new tracks today. Instrumental 'Soft Future' is a brooding fusion of chilled ambient and grooving pop-electronica, while 'Blood Knowledge' is awash with muffled synths, soothing guitars and blissful vocal harmonies.

The two tracks are accompanied by an interactive GIF novel created in collaboration with Parisian illustrator Mattis Dovier. The project forms part of The Jameson Works, a project which is "all about supporting modern-day craftsmen and sharing the interesting stories behind their processes".
