An epic, brooding progressive pop track, the new single from The Horrors, ‘Something To Remember Me By’, is out now. The song serves as a timely taster for the band’s new album V, which is due for release on 22 September 2017.
‘Something To Remember Me By’, which has already been attracting media attention and picking up extensive radio play in the UK, fuses elements of dance and euphoric trance with The Horrors’ already classic sound, to create a vital and instantly memorable single. The song was overseen by in-demand producer Paul Epworth, whose credits already include productions for Paul McCartney, Coldplay, U2, FKA Twigs, Lorde, Rihanna, Adele, London Grammar and Florence & The Machine. Epworth also produced V, which was recently described by The Guardian as “exactly the record to hurl The Horrors into the proper big time.”
The much-anticipated follow-up to 2014’s Top 40 success Luminous, The Horrors’ new album V is their fifth studio album and it features ten tracks in all: ‘Hologram’, ‘Press Enter To Exit’, ‘Machine’, ‘Ghost’, ‘Point Of No Reply’, ‘Weighed Down’, ‘Gathering’, ‘It’s A Good Life’ and ‘Something To Remember Me By’.
During July, the Southend-on-Sea quintet revealed a visually mesmerising computer-generated video for V’s critically-acclaimed first single ‘Machine’. Featuring layers of simulations of micro-organisms, the video is the work of CGI pioneer Jon Emmony, who is known for his beautiful, grotesque and intriguing simulation videos.
