Next month, The Horrors are set to release their new album, titled V. While it’s no doubt named after the fact that it’s the British dark rock band’s fifth album, we can’t help but think it’s a nod toward our website. While we’re busy figuring out if this is in fact the case (spoiler alert: probably not), we’ll trade our heart eyes over monikers for eyed hearts over sounds, as The Horrors new single “Something to Remember Me By” is out this morning, and it’s all kinds of fantastic.
“For yr consideration we present, ‘Something to Remember Me By’ — a love song laced with sarcasm and regret, and the sssecond sssingle from V,” writes the band online. “In true Horrors self-destructive fashion we nearly left this off the record entirely.”
That would have been a damn shame, because this feathery track, which finds The Horrors’ knack for earworms filtered through a Cut Copy-esque electronic-pop device, gives great promise to the new LP.
V, meanwhile, was produced by Paul Epworth and is out September 22 via Wolftone/Caroline. It’s already being billed, according to press notes via Consequence of Sound, as The Horrors’ “most expansive and progressive music” in their decade-long career. This new single certainly speaks to that.
