The Horrors: Skying

with one comment

Misfits turned idols, the post-punk sensation from England returns. Now with added disco.

review The Horrors Skying The Horrors receive so much lusty attention from the British press, it’s almost too much. But such is their life since “Primary Colours”, their 2009 record, revealed them as a highly knowledgeable and musically crafty band. “Skying” builds up on their dark, intricate post-punk in some ways – guitars still as noisy as you’d expect (hypnotising on ‘Endless Blue’), a step forward into shoegazing even, but there is a little bit less “dark” and a little more disco-pop. Think Primal Scream meets MBV. Or Joy Division meets Pulp. You’ve just stepped into the weirdest disco, they are playing ‘Moving Further Away’, and you might be strangely enjoying it.
