The Horrors- 'Sea Within A Sea'

. Tuesday, March 17

The Horrors have released a brand new track from their forthcoming second album 'Primary Colours'. The song, 'Sea Within A Sea', is an 8 minute epic, produced by Portishead's Geoff Barrow, and a complete departure for the band. Heavily influenced by Kraut and Shoegaze it sees frontman Faris Rotter singing in a more traditional style (almost like Ian Brown/Tim Burgess) for the first time alongside space age synths, jarring guitar squeals and hypnotic loops.

'Sea Within A Sea' became available at around 9.30pm ahead of the mysterious countdown on www.thehorrors.co.uk which culminated at midnight with the unveiling of the video for the song. The live performance video was directed by Jesus and Mary Chain's Douglas Hart.

The closing track on 'Primary Colours' and looks set to force a lot of people to re-evaluate one of the most divise bands in British music. Love it ot hate it this new sound is impressive, sit back and watch the sparks fly.

I like it. Not just a gimicky band afterall. If the rest of the album shows the same creativity without being repetitive then it should be good. I'd like to see them slot this in between Count In Fives and Sheena live though!
