End Come Too Soon

Songfacts®:

  • At 7:32, this is the longest track on any of Wild Beasts first three albums, making this one of the band's less accurate song titles. Bassist Tom Fleming discussed the song in an interview with Drowned In Sound: "Where we stitched together all the Reich repetitions, the Ronnie harmonies and the Oneohtrix swells that we had been doing for the weeks in our industrial basement. We were persuaded into keeping this to seven minutes, when we play it live it will be somewhere between seven and seventy. We were thinking MBV's holocaust section, but gentler, and rising. I had just seen Swans, and got (1985 piano composition) 'For Bunita Marcus.' so we've got acquainted with having patience, but this has as much to do with the Cocteau Twins. It is a joy to play."
