The Horrors- Primary Colours
When something is over hyped I usually run in the opposite direction. That is why I didn't pay much attention to The Horrors' debut album 'Strange House.' But when I read that their new album entitled 'Primary Colours' was going to be produced by Geoff Barrow (of Portishead, my fav band) and music vid director Chris Cunningham, I had to check it out.
Seething and grumbling with dark, punk and post punk/Joy Division-like noise and distorted vocals, the album is pretty good. You can definitely hear the Barrow influences in the atmospherics and the overall feel.
