Check out The Horrors new album on NPR Music's First Listen here!

What was born in an explosion of feedback and noise has mutated into something else entirely. Something like a revelation. An unexplored world: shadowy and macabre, yet lush, organic, almost phantasmagoric.

The Horrors used to be bipolar, brutalist, us vs. them, pure and simple. It has now erupted out of the monochrome, like Dorothy’s dream in ‘The Wizard Of Oz’, into jaw-dropping Technicolor – lurid, textural, astonishingly detailed.

Primary Colours will not only surprise you – it will take your breath away. It is also futuristic, open-minded, rampantly inventive, driven by dark passions. It was made by a group firmly united, but in artistic transition, on a quest for sounds that had never been heard before.

“If you’re doing something creative, you have to keep changing, progress is very important to us." states frontman Faris Badwan.

The Horrors’ debut, Strange House, was made on the fly. The five members came together in their late teens, after linking up in Southend and London, and bonding over ’60s garage-psych freak-out music. The first song they wrote, "Sheena Is A Parasite", clocked in at 1 minute and 40 seconds, its careening energy charged by a battering drum ‘n’ bass rhythm from drummer Coffin Joe, and demented, Birthday Party-esque noize from guitarist Joshua Third. These boys weren’t stuck in a twee ’60s time warp. They were post-millennial punk incarnate.
