Dark Horses Announce Double A-Single Release For Feb 2013
'Coming from that beautiful night from which emerge all true works. It touches the quick of the world and this is very rare'
Come February 2013, Dark Horses will release two further cuts from the beloved debut long player 'Black Music' (BBC 6 Music's album of the week) in the form of a double A side single Boxing Day/ 'Traps.
These Richard Fearless produced recordings, illuminate the night, conjuring fugitive atmospheres of irresistible melancholy.
'The group that became mythical almost before it began and remained spectral even in its most public moments.'
Dark Horses may wallow in their pretty surfaces but their musical merits can't be denied.
At last weeks prestigious Artrocker Awards held in London's East End, the 'Horses received the accolade of winning the coveted 'Best Single Of The Year 2012' for their effortless composition 'Radio', voted for by the exultant readers of Artrocker, making the prize that much more and may become the crowning glory, on what has become a golden year for Britain's darkest angels.
Speed is always exaggerated by those standing still.
Dark Horses also traveled across the frozen-hinterland soundscapes of Europe & Australia this year as hand-picked guests of both Sigur Ros and Beck and with more nocturnes planned, including rumoured Stone Roses supports and Mercury Prize nominations, 2013 promises to be an electric adventure for all.
Dark Horses are:
Lisa Elle: Vocals/Harmonica, Bobby Waterson: Guitar/synths, Andy Bang: Guitars
Steve Ingham: The Drums, Harry Bohay-Nowell: Electric Bass, Tommy Chain -Percussion, Ali Tollervey: Camera
The Lightning is within you.
