Both acts were recognised at the inaugural awards, with former Sonic Youth man Moore – who is now based in London – scoring the Living Legend honour and The Horrors the Outstanding Artistry award.
Tom Furse of The Horrors recently said that the band’s upcoming new album is their best to date. Furse discussed the London band’s new record while revealing a new mix for Modular Records. The Modcast can be streamed here and features tracks by Connan Mockasin, MGMT and Wings.
Speaking about The Horrors’ new music, Furse mentioned that the studio sessions for the record were not always easy. “I don’t know if every time we’ve made an album its been hard and over time I’ve just erased the majority of the bad stuff, but this one took some serious effort to get finished and it was tough,” he said. “It was sometimes delirious fun and other times quite painful.”
However, Furse was positive about what he and his bandmates have come up with: “I think it’s our best effort so far, every song has something special going for it. The songwriting has taken a step up so I think you can expect a bit more coherence, and a fair few unexpected turns. I don’t want to say too much as we’ve done a good job of keeping stuff under wraps. It’s definitely a step up.”
Later this month The Horrors will play the inaugural BBC 6 Music festival in Manchester. They appear on a line-up which also includes Damon Albarn, James Blake, The National and Haim.
