Yes, finally, after much hinting, Noah And The Whale have embraced their inner rock god and covered The Troggs’ ‘Wild Thing’. And it is everything you expected it to be and more. Devvil horns at the ready.

Or Not.

Noah And The Whale’s ‘Wild Thing’ doesn’t say it will make any hearts swing, or make anything groovy. Their ‘Wild Thing’ is a relaxed affair, in which singer Charlie couldn’t sound more relaxed telling the tale of a wild girl living in a quiet neighbourhood. Her ‘rage reaches out and takes control,’ we are told. Better take his word for it.

Can’t imagine he is still singing about Laura Marling though. It follows on from recent single ‘Life Goes On‘.
