New Album & Single from The Horrors

Fantastic news from The Horrors camp.  Yesterday evening they took everyone by surprise (most of all me!) with news of a new album, Skying, to be released on July 11.

Like this wasn’t enough to get us excited? They also unveiled the first single from the record, ‘Still Life’. The swaggering psychedelic shoegaze is retained but with less anger and darkness. An uplifting, warm and inspirational vibe is preferred with beautiful trumpets and super synths all working so, so well.

One can’t help but feel the warmth from this track and heavily reminiscent of Screamadelica era Primal Scream or Death In Vegas in their pomp!

The Horrors stunned music fans with the superb Primary Colours in 2009, after a largely poor and over-hyped debut. For some the jury may still have been out but on this early evidence album number three looks as though it may cast their rep in stone.   

That’s my two cents worth, what’s your verdict?
