The Horrors have shared two new tracks, Fire Escape and Water Drop. Taken from sessions for the bands critically acclaimed fifth album V, the bonus tracks are available to stream now. Listen here
Speaking on how the songs came about, the band explain:
“In typical Horrors fashion, we initially had the two tracks as one piece of music. First starting off with some synth loops our producer Paul put down, it evolved into this John Bonham-esque drum led track – Fire Escape – which halfway through shifted gear entirely into what felt like Eno crossed with heavy Cluster/Harmonia on Water Drop.
This change felt completely natural to us, with Water Drop feeling like the perfect release to the intense onslaught of Fire Escape. The dripping synth melody is the anchor in both tracks, gelling together two very different scenes into one.
Unfortunately, the tracks didn’t feel like they had a place on ‘V’ but we still felt like we wanted to share them anyway as a little artefact from those sessions. A deeper cut for our fans. We hope you enjoy them”.
