I’ve had my eye on The Horrors since their birth six years ago in my home town of Southend. After a predictable first album, they have constantly reinvented themselves, 2009’s Mercury-nominated Primary Colours unashamedly waves its influences of Neu! and Can with epic tracks like Sea Within a Sea. Their latest offering, Skying, driven by psychedelic trancy pop, has shifted them again. This is a more rounded, complete album.
