There’s always a moment where special bands open your eyes to the pure unstoppable force they’ve been promising for years. For The Horrors, it’s been clear for a while just how special they are, unravelling another layer to their coated talents on each and every album, never stopping in one place and always taking things to a different location at every step in their career. Yet there always seemed like there was something, more. We couldn’t put our finger on it, but there was always that sensation that The Horrors had yet to unveil their moment in the sun. Then, there's ‘Something To Remember Me By’ - a star-studded swoon of electro beats, glorious pop hooks and unravelling majesty that doesn’t just whet our appetite for new album ‘V’, but soaks us in a realisation that The Horrors are entering a golden phase.

‘Something To Remember Me By’ is a glorious nightclub induced cocktail that over the course of over six and a half minutes engulfs itself in a coating of euphoric pop joy that would have seen on the other side of the planet when the Southend-ers released ‘Strange House’ over ten years ago. Simmering with that pulsating synth line, it reaches for the hands in the air feeling of Hacienda days and wondrous 3am epiphanies at Fabric, yet with an almost menacing undertone of darkness. It’s the moment where Faris Badwan and Co have found that magic in-between, taking the grit on the street and mixing it with a blissful serenade that’ll have you head over heels in no time.

What’s so special, is that it feels so natural. It glides on itself and creates a world around it, and in the process reaches that moment where The Horrors have a whole new era to play with. This is what they’ve been promising from the very beginning. Now let the lights shine. Jamie Muir
