The Horrors have shared new double single 'Fire Escape' b/w 'Water Drop'.
The band released new album 'V' last year, a storming, industrial-influenced return featuring production from Paul Epworth.
Completing a global run of headline shows, The Horrors will hit the road once more this summer, and have decided to share some new material.
Born from the same sessions as 'V', new double single 'Fire Escape' b/w 'Water Drop' is online now and seemingly boasts influences as disparate as Led Zeppelin and niche elements of the 70s German underground.
The Horrors explain...
"In typical Horrors fashion, we initially had the two tracks as one piece of music. First starting off with some synth loops our producer Paul put down, it evolved into this John Bonham-esque drum led track - 'Fire Escape' - which halfway through shifted gear entirely into what felt like Eno crossed with heavy Cluster/Harmonia on 'Water Drop'."
"This change felt completely natural to us, with 'Water Drop' feeling like the perfect release to the intense onslaught of 'Fire Escape'. The dripping synth melody is the anchor in both tracks, gelling together two very different scenes into one." "Unfortunately, the tracks didn’t feel like they had a place on ‘V' but we still felt like we wanted to share them anyway as a little artefact from those sessions. A deeper cut for our fans. We hope you enjoy them."
