The Horrors - Something To Remember Me By

The Horrors  have always had that danceable sound, whether it’s the bright, shiny synths of ‘Who Can Say’ or the grit of ‘Endless Blue’, the five-piece have always been able to make a crowd move. It’s not until now, though, that they’ve fully embraced groove. ‘Something To Remember Me By’, its the closing track from the band’s upcoming fifth album ‘V’, settles into a rhythm early and doesn’t flinch for the next seven minutes.

Embracing the euphoric, propulsive synth-pop of New Order, Faris Badwan’s howl is replaced with a calm but probing whisper, one that proves to be equally affecting. The polar opposite to the band’s muddy, chaotic first single ‘Machine’, the new cut feels like the perfect album closer, and leaves the form and shape of what comes in between across ‘V’ an enticing prospect. A highlight of the band’s recent Latitude set, ‘Something To Remember Me By’ also looks to already be a highlight of their discography.

There’s a moment – exactly as the track hits the four-and-a-half-minute mark – the kind of moment to send blood coursing and incite an unstoppable sense of euphoria. Sending the track, and new album ‘V’, off into a simply wonderful finish, it could be the best thing The Horrors have ever written.
