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.

The HORRORS – ” Machine “

Posted: June 19, 2017 in MUSIC

The Horrors have released their first new track in three years. Called “Machine,” it was produced by Paul Epworth who has worked with Adele, FKA twigs, and Thurston Moore, and was recorded at the Church Studios. It’s a slow-builder that stomps along with the Horrors signature darkness. No word on an upcoming album but The Horrors will be playing a handful of dates in Europe, Japan, and Mexico. The band are releasing songs on Spotify as they ready the new album. We’ll be putting all our new songs up on there as they are released – follow us and be the envy of all the other punks

The Horrors are back. Listen to their new single ‘Machine’

SEM Video Exclusive: Elephant Stone Premieres “Child of Nature” (The Tom Furse [The Horrors] Extrapolation)

Yesterday, SEM premiered the video for Anton Newcombe and Fabien Leseure’s remix of “Three Poisons,” the first track on ES3PRMX, a collection of six remixes of songs from Elephant Stone’s breathtaking 2014 LP, The Three Poisons. Tom Furse (The Horrors’ subtractive synthesis genius) reinvents/re-imagines Child of Nature from Elephant Stone’s The Three Poisons (2014) as a house/dancefloor timebomb.

Today, we proudly present the video for Horrors’ keyboardist Tom Furse’s remix of “Child of Nature.”

Montreal’s Elephant Stone was formed in 2009 by sitarist/bassist Rishi Dhir. As one of the most highly sought out sitar players in the international psych scene, he has recorded, performed and toured with Beck, the Black Angels, Brian Jonestown Massacre, the Horrors, and many more. Elephant Stone has released two LPs, an EP, and has toured throughout North American and Europe. They have spear-headed the Hindie-Rock movement with their deft ability of weaving together rock’n’roll, Hindustani classical, and catchy-as-all-hell pop.

The throbbing chaos of a gig is a common sight to us all, but it’s made especially eerie in this new video from The Horrors, which we’re premiering below, as they distil that raucous energy into visuals of perfect and purple calm, guided by the spellbinding waltz of “Change Your Mind”.

Does the distant and wild crowd interspersed with solitary and sullen shots of the band subtly nod towards the idea of feeling more alone than ever in a room full of people? Who knows. It’s bloody lovely though.



the new album sounds great, Lots of creeping Synths and perhaps a bit slicker in Production but still a huge euphoric sound this band bring to their songs, will be awesome live, The album Luminous is out now,
