We review The Horrors’ single, I see you

I See You is the first track released from The Horrors’ upcoming LP entitled Luminous and is a generous insight into the new album with seven minutes of anthemic dream-pop sounds. Beginning with a somewhat Baba O’Riley (The Who) reminiscent synth which leads listeners into arpeggiated synths accompanied by vivid guitars layered with delay and wonder. Ferris’s vocals are enigmatic and reminiscent of such artists as Bowie and The Cure. As the first track released, it is a rather marvelous one, leaving listeners hungry for more. Luminous is set for release 6 May, so for me May cannot come sooner. The Horrors is led by Ferris Badwan on lead vocals with Tom Cowan on synth and bass, Joshua Hayward on guitar and piano, Joe Spurgeon on drums and Rhys Webb on bass and organ. The band began in early 2005 and within two years had produced the gothic/garage rock album Strange House with two releases since.
