Single Review – The Horrors – Something To Remember Me By

Electro-Pop was not something we expected to hear from The Horrors, especially after the dark industrial sounds of the lead single ‘Machine’ from their upcoming fifth album V (due for release on Sepetember 22nd). ‘Something to remember me by’ features a crisp Pop beat along with chiming synth chords. The chorus opens up into an array of shimmering electronica and wiry tunes played out by a further set of synths. Faris’ vocals do strain slightly to fit into the pacey and upbeat environment, but just about work into the blazer piece of electronic indulgence which looks to indicate a varied album, but you’d hope the darker landscapes or at least the method behind them prevails for their fifth album as there were only hints at those soundscaping methods in this track.
