Wild Beasts cover Miley Cyrus' "Wrecking Ball"

Wild Beasts

In "cover of the day" news, Hayden Thorpe and Tom Fleming of Wild Beasts played a stripped-down acoustic set at New York's infamous record shop Other Music last night, and they lent their trademark minimalism to a bare-bones acoustic version of Miley Cyrus's much-covered "Wrecking Ball." It's an amazing watch and listen - with their soaring dual vocals, the guys make the song sound like a melancholic indie ballad, and watching both them and the audience occasionally break down into hysterical laughter makes the whole thing pretty special. Check it out.
