The Horrors Release Another Track Off 'Luminous'

The Horrors

I don’t know much about the British band the Horrors, but they have already released three albums and are about to reveal to the world their 4th and ‘Luminous’ album on May 5th.

‘So Now You Know’ is the second track they share on YouTube and after a few listenings, I find the song quite pleasant, the beginning in particular is as promising as a new morning of spring, it seems to slowly be waking up, then the synth-pop melody is  floating as the long instrumental intro is both relaxing and gently dancing. The rest of the song alternates between intense dance floor numbers and some slow languishing parts,… but is it me or there is a strong 80s synth vibe in all this?

The UK band will also play a show in LA as part of the Britweek Music Sessions, and they are scheduled to play the First Unitarian Church on May 1st…the Horrors in a church, goths meet gothic architecture? It totally makes sense. The tickets will be on sale through Ticketfly and I bet it will sell out faster than you can say their name.

The Horrors have already released  ‘I See You’ a month ago, a longer and more epic track, and a still very 80s danceable number, part psychedelia, part pop, part dance floor, part synthetic soundscape, part free fall in space,… I am not sure you can find an accurate genre, could it be a bit My Bloody Valentine going disco after 4 minutes? It has an expansive style and an ambition going in many directions,… actual bassist Rhys Webb described the track to NME as ‘when we were writing, this track made us realize we were going in the right direction. It started to shape the final picture’. All I can say is that it sounds monster big and they are probably going to blow up the roof of this church.

Chasing Shadows
First Day of Spring
So Now You Know
