"These U.K. Beasts flaunt theatrical flair on Bed of Nails, featured on their latest album, Smother. New wave–style production — which sounds especially full and kinetic thanks to drumming that pans left to right — swathes Hayden Thorpe’s dramatic, almost operatic vocal delivery. His poetic verses convey a sense of pained romantic attraction (with allusions to the works of Shakespeare and Mary Shelley), and the haunting, cooed harmonies bolster the beautiful yet slightly unnerving vibe. It’s like a somewhat cryptic short story that we enjoy picking up again and again." -- iTunes Store
