The Horrors are back, you might have heard. But have you listened to the album yet?
In our 9/10 review of The Horrors' second album, Primary Colours (read it here), DiS scribe Charles Ubaghs said:
Where once stood five carefully styled students looking to create a loud racket, Primary Colours reveals a confident, poised group of songwriters who aren’t afraid of acknowledging the sounds of years gone by while successfully sidestepping the pitfalls of pastiche. The influences are apparent and that can’t be denied. The Cure, The Jesus & Mary Chain, The Psychedelic Furs and every other black clad British rocker of a certain vintage have left their mark on Primary Colours. The pulsating chimes of opener 'Mirror’s Image' even tip a hat to Brian Eno’s early ambient work.
Anyway, make up your own mind by listening to the album via this clever little player thingamy:
DiScuss: thoughts? Is it more media hype than you can swallow? Or does it actually surprise and excite you?
