Boy King is the fifth studio album by Wild Beasts, released in 2016 through Domino Records. It is a concept album dealing with the self-destructive effects of modern-day masculinity. It was recorded in Dallas, Texas with producer John Congleton, who previously helmed albums by St. Vincent and Swans.  – Wiki

“Wild Beasts make a stylistic pivot on Boy King, the British band’s fifth album and follow-up to 2014’s well-received Present Tense. Teaming up with producer John Congleton, the album was partially born out of writing sessions with Disclosure, and that influence can be seen throughout the record, which is filled with sparkling, slinking, and stuttering synth-rock.” – Stereogum

“that’s how Boy King comes across on the first few listens, as if it’s squaring up to us, strutting, all testosterone and violent, eyeballing virility. Sure, Wild Beasts have been combative before - the opening of “Invisible” is brutal, slaughtered enemies tumbling into a gaping hole, whilst that synth drop in “Daughters” is still visceral - but this - this is something new.” – Line of Best Fit
