Album artwork for Skying by The Horrors

the horrors make their eagerly awaited return with the release of a 10 track new album on xl recordings. 'skying', self-produced and recorded in the horrors' own self built studio in london's dalston, was mixed by grammy award winner craig silvey. 'skying' is the band's third long player, and follows 2009's mercury prize nominated 'primary colours' and their debut 'strange house' which was released in 2007. everything on 'skying' soars like spiritualized without the smack and faris' new voice is smooth, delicate and tuneful. the album cuts from the baggy pop of opening track 'changing the rain' to the bowie esque 'endless blue' and wonderfully immediate pop of 'i can see through you'. this is the horrors' most commercial yet, but there's no standout singles or would-be hits. rough trade's love affair with the horrors is now three albums deep.
