Horse The Band

Horse The Band


Keeping with the equestrian theme… Horse The Band, the most brilliantly named band in music – when asked ‘why are you called Horse The Band‘, the reply was ‘so you don’t confuse us with the animal’ – are due to release their fifth full length album, Desperate Living, on the 6th of October. Dubbed as Nintendo-core, and arguably the band that did Enter Shikari, before Enter Shikari, Horse The Band incorporate the chaos associated with the Fightpop stylings of bands like The Mae Shi and Dananananaykroyd; the heavily distorted powerchord progressions and gut-wrenching, larynx-shredding vocals characteristic of Screamo acts like Alexisonfire; and bleep and glitch synths and samples reminiscent of Tetris being played through a 1977 Atari console.

You must be a little intrigued right? So head on down to their Myspace by clicking the image and listen out for Desperate Living later this year.
