British indie-pop collective Wild Beasts have unveiled the video for the track A Simple Beautiful Truth, the latest single from their new album Present Tense. Directed by Klaus Thymann, the fun music video features the band wearing an assortment of clothes as they dance atop a mountain and in a car park.

“We were inspired enough by the absurdist approach taken by the band Talking Heads to don electric suits and dance on the top of a Beacons mountain,” the band said in a statement, referring specifically to it's lead singer David Byrne. The continued, “We wanted to capture the weightlessness of a song like A Simple Beautiful Truth, to attempt something so ridiculous as to be sublime. The experience was strangely liberating and we asked ourselves why we hadn’t done this before.”
