The Horrors - Skying (new album / video)

The Horrors
Skying
(XL)
Releasing: 25 July (UK), 26 July (US)

If music critics love three things, those things are name-dropping obscure bands, abusing adjectives, and post-punk. When reformed UK Goths the Horrors released their Chameleons-esque second album, Primary Colours in 2009, music critics filled a thesaurus entry for the words “haunting” and “drony”, as well as sentence after hyperbolic sentence praising the album’s many hues and layers. From the sounds of new song “Still Life”, critics will be hitting up thesaurus.com all over again come July 26, when third album Skying sees its release via XL. In the meantime, we can all enjoy the synths and, to an extent, Faris Badwan’s ever-improving singing voice with nary a descriptive in mind.

"Fire Emblem Heroes desperately and shamelessly wants to monetize our love for these characters, yet it has no idea why we came to love them in the first place.
