Following the announcement of a new album on Lo Recordings early next year, The Horrors’ co-founder and synthesist, Tom Furse shares a special self-made video for the lead single.
‘A Journey In Ecstasy’ was recorded, mixed and mastered by Furse at his electronic studio on the Margate coast and is an edited version of the epic 20-minute opener to the forthcoming album, Ecstatic Meditations.

Available digitally and on limited edition clear vinyl with artwork by Furse, ‘Ecstatic Meditations’ is the follow up to 2016’s acclaimed debut solo outing ‘Interludes’ and features six beautifully crafted new tracks. An adventurous deep listening experience, the new long-player sees him deliver a sonic tapestry of sound that takes inspiration from the likes of Alice Coltrane, Laraaji, Eno and Steve Reich together with a newfound appreciation for Japanese environmental music composers such as Akira Ito and Yasauki Shizimu. The result is an intense yet playfully refreshing take on ambient and electronic music.
“In these miserable times, I wanted to make something unashamedly joyful”. - Tom Furse
‘Ecstatic Meditations’ is the latest in Lo Recordings’ Spaciousness series which aims to explore the connections, the overlaps, the roots and the future of music variously referred to as ambient, deep listening, new age and even post-classical.
