Track Of The Day: The Horrors - 'I See You'

One of the finest bands of the last decade The Horrors are ready to release their fourth album 'Luminous', which the group have been busy recording over the last 15 months or so. This tremendous single 'I See You' is the first taste of what they have in store for us this time around, with the full LP coming on May 5 through XL Records. As well as a rebooted modern touch of 'Baba o Riley' at the start, hints of 'I Feel Love' are present throughout the first few verses too, as are heavy flavours of Echo And The Bunnymen, and that bridge even recalls Manchester legends James. But overall these are just little edges to a sound that ultimately belongs to The Horrors, an expansive thing with a cataclysmic groove and a beaming, anthemic chorus. Brightness shines from it in a most euphoric fashion, before moving towards the light in search of higher orbits. Bassist Rhys Webb has said of the upcoming LP: "It’s not so much about heavier guitars as a heavier potency… We want to make music you can dance to, music that elevates…". With this, they've certainly not failed.
