Last year The Horrors released perhaps their best album yet, V, and with a number of festival dates booked in this summer they’ve shared an intense and unsettling monochrome video for one of its highlights, ‘Ghost’.
Speaking of the new video, the band say, “We wanted a video that represented the song visually and encapsulated the ambiguity of the lyrics. We felt that in/out (the video directors) perfectly captured the tense feeling of the track and created one of our favourite videos to date.”
Directing duo in/out add, “The Horrors’ brief talked of madness and redemption; disguises and hidden worlds; and a feeling of being swept away. Thermal imagery helped us represent the body at an unsettling crossroads between the familiar and the unknown. Penetrating beneath the skin, it serves as a reminder of the fragility below.”
As well as London’s Citadel festival, The Horrors will be at Standon Calling, Boardmasters, Reading and Leeds, and Festival No. 6 this summer.
