The Horrors - Primary Colours



This second album is so wildly different from The Horrors’ schlocky, B-movie, overhyped garage debut that it’s hard to believe it’s the same band. Gone are the irritating punk rants and big hair, replaced by ghosts of The Cure, Joy Division and JAMC and, erm, slightly smaller hair. There’s an admirably bloody single-mindedness about it though, and certainly more depth to the likes of ‘I Only Think Of You’ than they ever shown previously, but the whole thing is rather monotonous in its misery, and they do wear their new influences on their sleeves. Kudos for trying something different though.

The Horrors

Hailing from Southend-on-Sea, the four-piece performs psychedelic punk tinged with elements of goth.
