Song of the WEEK: The Horrors – Something To Remember Me By


The Horrors are a band that are sneaky good. Like it’s 2017 and somehow I’m excited for their new music. You would have never thought this to be true ten years ago when they were known more for wearing skinny jeans on The Mighty Boosh than for the music. But times have changed. The band put out one of my favorite 2011 albums Skying with an evolved sound and have been rather consistently good since. You wouldn’t really know that because they have mostly slid under the radar in the past years.

It reminds me of the basketball player Mike Conley – started off in the news but was mostly overshadowed (Ohio State with Greg Oden), went back into obscurity (Memphis) but was consistent and good enough to be recognized for his skills despite not amassing a whole lot of popularity. Anyways, The Horrors have a new record coming out and this was one of the first singles off of it and it’s fantastic.

With “Something To Remember Me By,” it appears the Horrors, like a lot of bands, have embraced the synthesizers and the dance floor. Beneath the beats, it still has that additional layer of drama that the Horrors always seem to have. It’s a fantastic song.
