Released: March 2009
When The Horrors emerged in 2006 as gothically themed garage rockers, hype quickly gave way to backlash. The darlings of Southend’s Junk Club scene were dismissed as one-trick ponies, and poor sales of 2007 debut album ‘Strange House’ cost them their major-label deal. When they returned in 2009, they were unrecognisable. Mesmeric comeback single ‘Sea Within A Sea’ ran to seven minutes instead of the customary two, featured Faris Badwan singing instead of screeching, and mined a new influence: the smooth, pulsing dream-rock of Can and Neu!. The stage was set for 'Primary Colours' – and The Horrors' ascent to greatness.
