The Horrors: Primary Colour (XL)
Sounding more psychedelic than spooky is the 2nd album from British rock outfit The Horrors. Produced by Portishead’s Geoff Barrow, expect no whiny emo vocals or over-exaggerated synths. Instead, sink your teeth into a cerebral kaleidoscope full of buzzing guitars, off-tune synths and 60s reverb.
The Jesus And Mary Chain and My Bloody Valentine seem like the key influencers here with the band playing around with emptiness and walls of noise. Lets just hope that this is enough to redeem them from their much-hyped debut that sadly fell into goth oblivion.
