Dark Horses #2 - Live On Hunger


Dark Horses are a band I've only featured here once before (back in May 2012) but I could easily have posted a half dozen times or so time permitting (time is rarely permitting in this game). I return to the Brighton group with "Live on Hunger", the first track taken from their forthcoming second album Hail Lucid State (undated but due via Last Gang Records).

The track recalls the heady rhythmic pulse and droning psyche buzz of their earlier work but sounds altogether bigger and bolder too, with swarming guitars and pounding drums colliding amongst the imposing vocal of Lisa Elle's, here more brooding and macabre than ever, "Live on Hunger" delivers the bands most urgent, thrilling moment to date and is here to literally knock your socks off.

Dark Horses shortly embark on a lengthy European tour which hits London's Hoxton Square Bar on March 31st - tickets.
