XL Recordings presents the fourth album from The Horrors, Luminous, available May 6th.Recorded over 15 months in the band?s east London studio-laboratory-bunker with co-producer Craig Silvey (Yeah Yeah Yeahs,Arcade Fire,The National), Luminous is the follow-up to the band?s 2007 debut Strange House, the Mercury-nominated Primary Colours (2009), and the critically-acclaimed Skying (2011). Further input came from producer Paul Epworth (Adele, Paul McCartney, Foster The People) on the track ?Falling Star?. Tasking themselves with moving onwards, The Horrors determined to make an album that was brighter, more positive, more electronic. Luminous by name, luminous by nature: this is an album radiating light and energy. These songs are The Horrors writing at their instinctive, intuitive and accessible best. Lead track ?I See You?, a seven and a half minute synth anthem was revealed several weeks ago to fantastic reviews including, ?I See You is full of pop-optimism and an ending so elevating it sounds as if they?re hurtling through space?. The Horrors are Faris Badwan (vocals), Joshua Third (guitarist), Tom Furse (keyboards, synthesizers), Rhys Webb (bass) and Joe Spurgeon (drums, percussion).
