The Horrors have revealed a striking yet strange new video for ‘Something to Remember Me By’.
Director Max Weiland said: “this video is a comment on society’s obsession with celebrity and the music industry’s attempt to take advantage of that. A strange corporation harvests The Horrors for their real blood, sweat, tears and more, turning their bodily fluids into consumer products ready for the mass market.”
The track is taken from The Horrors’ critically acclaimed fifth album ‘V’, which was released this week via Wolf Tone/Caroline International.
‘Something to Remember Me By’ was hailed as the band’s best work to date, with The Guardian saying it is “possibly their best song yet” and DIY Magazine declaring it “unstoppably euphoric, it’s maybe the best thing The Horrors have ever written”. The album was recorded at The Church in London with producer Paul Epworth (FKA Twigs, Lorde, Adele, Florence and the Machine, Coldplay and U2).
‘V’ is the sound of a band making the most expansive and progressive music of their careers.
