Zum wundervollen Song “Palace” vom aktuellen Album “Present Tense” hat Regisseur Alex Turvey den Wild Beasts ein herrliches Video gezaubert. Die Szenen im Spot wirken surreal und lassen tatsächlich Einflüsse von David Lynch spüren.
Tom Fleming sagt über das Video: “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. 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.”
