On May 6, (May 5 in the UK), The Horrors, a British band with three pretty good studio albums out since 2007 (Strange House – 2007, Primary Colours – 2009, Skying – 2011), will release their 4th one, Luminous. With the single “So Now You Know” out in advance of the new album, I have to say that I expect Luminous to be quite the ride.
The Horrors originated in Britain in 2005, with a strong love and influence toward ’80s music. If you think Depeche Mode, Jesus And Mary Chain, and Psychedelic Furs, then you’re on your way to think what The Horrors might be like. The new song (viewed below) is a great tune that is not only transporting to another time, but is a realization of a great band to explore and enjoy.
Once you hear “So Now You Know”, you’ll likely not only be pre-ordering Luminous, you may also be thinking about picking up the previous three!
Luminous with its ten new tracks, will be issued on standard single CD, the usual MP3 DD, and a vinyl LP release.
Please, let me know what you think of The Horrors, even if you find them uninteresting (the horror!!).
