With the new album out on 22nd September, the anticipation for The Horrors’ latest effort V is starting to build steadily. Now we have another brick to add to that structure with the new release ‘Weighed Down’
Last month the band shared the closing track ‘Something To Remember Me By’, and as the title suggests it was a bit of an ear worm. Now the band have shared new track ‘Weighed Down’ and following suit it feels an incredibly prophetic title.
A deep and darkened melody is haunted by synths and the distant rattle of percussion as Faris does his best to highlight a murky sound. It evolves and breathes light, amidst an industrial echo, as the track relinquishes its grip. Impressive work.
The band said on Facebook “Good morning/ afternoon/ night. It’s two weeks til we finally get to share V with you. But until then, a new song called WEIGHED DOWN. We wrote this right at the beginning and it clung on til the bitter end”.
Take a listen below.
