The Horrors

Last Friday evening I saw one of my very favourite bands around at the minute play live; The Horrors. Unbelievably it was only the third time in the four years that I’ve been a fan that I’ve seen them play live, after Evolution Festival 2010 and Glastonbury this summer. The venue was the o2 ABC in Glasgow, an extremely good venue. An amazing show. An amazing band.

It’s perhaps an obvious musical cliche, but they’re one of those bands that make me feel rather than just hear. Across their four albums (Strange House, 2007; Primary Colours, 2009; Skying, 2011; and this year’s Luminous) they’ve transitioned from one style of music to the next, creating blissful soundscapes from a myriad of influences whilst retaining their own particular bass-heavy and synth-drenched style. Wondrous.
