The Horrors + Toy + Haxan Cloak

The formerly fright-wigged, black-clad Horrors gang surprised – and impressed – everyone with their terrific experimental electronica/ psychedelic pop LP of 2009, 'Primary Colours', which justly won them a Mercury nomination for its advancement of their psych-punk template. Now with a third album in tow – 'Skying' (XL) – Faris Badwan and co show off their widescreen, dramatically glittering synth-pop sound, which recalls Psychedelic Furs and Simple Minds. Awesome new psych-pop, riff-groovers Toy, who frequently tour with The Horrors, support.
