East London via Southend-On-Sea band THE HORRORS have come along way since 2005, when they graced the cover of the NME with eye-linered eyes, big hari, an eff-you attitude and barely a single (the spiky ‘Shenna Is A Parasite') to their name. Their live shows were a riot- often literally- but did what rock n roll is supposed to do: energise, excite, divide and polarize. Three records on, they're all grown up and the hype has evolved into almost universal respect. Skying is a wide-ranging, shapeshifting album with an overarching pop sensibility (see: unklikely hit single ‘Still Life'). They headlined the Laneway- curated stage at London's Field Day in July and we guarantee that they're as thrilling as ever.
