Dark Horses have announced their return with the release of a brand new single ‘Live On Hunger’, as well as news of their second album Hail Lucid State, coming this May on Last Gang Records.
It’s 18 months since the release of their brooding, haunting and shadowy debut LP, Black Music, and on this evidence at least, the intervening time has done little to abate their predilection for shadowy darkness. Dark Horses have once again teamed up with Richard Fearless (of Death In Vegas fame) for production duties and Fearless’ stamp clearly discernible from the opening drone and thud of ‘Live On Hunger’. It’s an impassioned no-holds-barred anthem, packed with both precision and attitude, and embellished with swirling serrated guitars, waves of pulsating electronic and touches of psychedelia. The latter has been ever present but their sound has always been, and remains to stark to easily slide into that genre. A stunning return from Dark Horses.
