About this item

The band’s fifth album overall, it was recorded in London with Paul Epworth, the acclaimed producer who began his career with the likes of Bloc Party and Death From Above but is perhaps most known for his more recent work with Adele and U2. Epworth helped The Horrors explore a diverse sound that’s their “most expansive and progressive music” yet. Anyone who has heard low-slung and massive comeback single Something To Remember Me By should be in no doubt that this is a band expertly ringing the changes once again.  It's a swaggering blend of synths, groove and rock and, to these ears  sounds like the Human League. With Faris actually singing!  Whilst this is a revelation, it's also quite necessary, as this time out The Horrors have written the best pop songs of their whole career. It's dark, multi-layered and shifting, but it's also, bizarrely whistle-able as fuck!  Gonna shock all the aficianados, but I think this is their best album yet!

STAFF COMMENTS

Andy says: What a surprise! Just when we thought The Horrors were losing their way, they come up with their best album yet. Firstly, the songs themselves are all superb, every single track, but the sound, the production is absolutely incredible! A deep, dark, moving blend of synths, electronics, guitars and grooves.
