Return of The Horrors

Horrors 2009

The gangly, black-clad lads from Central Saint Martins are back with the first single from their sophomore LP Primary Colours.

Produced by Portishead's Geoff Barrow, Sea Within a Sea is a departure from the Birthday Party style gothic punk & 60s garage influenced sound of 2007's Strange House, instead taking cues from Krautrockers Can and Neu!

Clocking in around eight minutes, it's an epic. I could personally do without the meandering three minute space-rock intro and get right to the lovely synth lead - yes, it's mostly electronic. On top of that, Faris sings [quite nicely] rather than growls.
