The Horrors pack out Reading Festival’s NME/Radio 1 Stage

Faris Badwan and co focus on 'Primary Colours' during their set

The Horrors showcased their second album to a packed NME/Radio 1 Stage at Reading Festival this afternoon (August 28).

The band, dressed all in black, said little as they performed a set drawn entirely from recent release ‘Primary Colours’, including ‘I Only Think Of You’ and ‘Three Decades’.

‘I Can’t Control Myself’ saw singer Faris Badwan kick over his microphone stand, resulting in cheers from the audience.

The Horrors ended their set by playing their two most recent singles, ‘Who Can Say’ and ‘Sea Within A Sea’.

Both drew massive applause from the audience, who moshed to the former and cheered the latter’s synth coda.

The Horrors played:

‘Mirror’s Image’
‘Three Decades’
‘I Can’t Control Myself’
‘New Ice Age’
‘Scarlet Fields’
‘I Only Think Of You’
‘Who Can Say’
‘Sea Within A Sea’
