Watch The Horrors & The Afghan Whigs Play Jools Holland

The Horrors’ swooping, dance-informed new album Luminous came out yesterday, and it’s our Album Of The Week during a week when a lot of big albums came out. On the most recent episode of the BBC show Later… With Jools Holland, the band rolled through to play the sweeping single “So Now You Know.” They… More »

Album Of The Week: The Horrors Luminous

Album Of The Week was a straight-up dogfight this week, a brutally even match between two strong competitors. In one corner, there was Lykke Li’s beautifully heart-trampled breakup album I Never Learn, in which Li ditches all her kinda-cute dance-pop tics and goes straight for the emotional jugular. For a breakup album, this one take… More »

Photos: Austin Psych Fest 2014

This past weekend Austin Psych Fest hosted a ton of great bands that generally would fall under the umbrella of being psychedelic. That is a gratefully wide definition which led to a varied and far-reaching lineup. Current psych masters like Panda Bear and of Montreal performed alongside old guards like the Zombies while stranger, more… More »

Stream The Horrors Luminous

Next week, the constantly-evolving British rock band the Horrors will release Luminous, their fourth album, and it’s a good one. The album is full of these vast, echoing synthpop anthems, and it reminds me of the short moment where Britpop and dance music bled over into one another and made for all these brief one-off… More »

The Horrors – “Your Love” (Frankie Knuckles Cover)

The Horrors are basically a psychedelic synths-and-guitars band, but they’re also the sort of band who gleefully defies categorization. And as it turns out, they’re the type of band who can knock out an awesome cover of a Chicago house classic at will. The Chicago house music originator Frankie Knuckles died a few weeks ago,… More »

The Horrors – “So Now You Know” Video

Psychedelic British chameleons the Horrors are about to return with Luminous, their first album in four years, and now they’ve made a video for “So Now You Know,” which follows the expansive “I See You” as the second album track they’ve shared. The video depicts a group of suspiciously photogenic misfit kids who have some… More »

The Horrors – “So Now You Know”

A little over a month from now, The Horrors will release Luminous, their first full-length in four years. We’ve already heard the 7-minute, genre-spanning epic “I See You” and now here’s the more single-friendly “So Now You Know,” which premiered on Zane Lowe’s BBC Radio 1 show today. Listen below.

The 5 Best Songs Of The Week

The music gods were really kind this week. We had maybe a dozen legit songs in contention for this week’s 5 Best, and and when we finally narrowed it down five, we could barely even find a way to rank them, because any of them would have been a worthy choice for No. 1. Heck,… More »

Watch The Horrors Play “I See You” At Last Night’s NME Awards

Last night at the NME Awards 2014, the Horrors performed a new single. The new track is called “I See You” and it will be on their forthcoming album Luminous. “I See You” features a melody driven by synths, or at least that’s the dominating sound. The performance from last night builds and builds until… More »

The Horrors – “I See You”

Earlier today, gothy British post-punkers the Horrors announced some details of their upcoming fourth LP: It will be called Luminous (that’s the cover art above), and it will be released on May 5. It’s the band’s first album since 2011’s Skying, and as frontman Faris Badwan told NME, “This is the album I’ve been most… More »

Rachel Zeffira – “Here On In (Tom Furse Extrapolation)” (Stereogum Premiere)

When approaching his refit of Cat Eyes’ Rachel Zeffira’s “Here On In,” the Horrors’ Tom Furse went for an “extrapolation” instead of your standard issue “remix.” And the delineation makes perfect sense — Zeffira’s original is atmospheric, but still tinged with a rock backbone due to its cold, subdued guitar riffs. When Furse gets hi… More »

The Twilight Sad – “Not Sleeping (Tom Furse Dub Mix)”

Earlier this year, the Twilight Sad released their stark, unforgiving, dance-inflected album No One Can Ever Know. And next week, they’ll drop No One Can Ever Know: The Remixes, an impressively well-curated collection of reworkings. We’ve already posted remixes from Liars and Com Truise, and now here’s another one. The Horrors’ Tom Furse has turned… More »

The Black Angels, The Horrors, Moon Duo @ Fonda Theatre, Hollywood 4/18/12

The onslaught of sideshows in between Coachella weekends continues as the Black Angels and the Horrors teamed up for a co-headlining show at the Fonda Theatre. The Black Angels kept things psychedelic and drone-y. The Horrors continue to sharpen their live performance as they had the crowd moving along to the haunting selections from their… More »

The Horrors – “Changing The Rain” Video

The Horrors’ video for “Changing The Rain,” one of the songs from their excellent album Skying, is a psychedelic, kaleidoscopic animated affair in which the band members’ faces become our new alien overlords. Supper Furry Animals collaborator Pete Fowler directs. Watch it below. More »

Watch The Horrors Join Florence & The Machine At The NME Awards

Last night, the NME Awards went down in London, and two titans of vaguely gothic Brit-rock shared the stage for one song. Florence & The Machine’s Florence Welch duetted with the Horrors on the latter band’s single “Still Life,” adding some pretty great backing-vocal soar to an already-huge song. Both acts finished the night a… More »

Watch The Horrors on Carson Daly

Last Call With Carson Daly: It’s still on! Who knew? Last night, the show featured the majestic British synth-rockers the Horrors. But instead of bringing the band in to play in front of a studio audience, Last Call did what it’s been doing lately: It just aired footage of the band playing a couple of… More »
