Honing a unique, yet evocative sound, reminiscent of 90’s pioneers Sonic Youth, My Bloody Valentine and taking cues from German legends Neu!, along with relative newcomers DIIV, Horror My Friend summon the spirit of alternative rock and shoe gaze, whilst breaking new ground and embedding themselves firmly in the present. Within their relatively short career, Horror My Friend have caused a stir and garnered critical acclaim both nationally and internationally, through a strong commitment to chaotic, yet commanding live shows, touring and the strength of their song writing at such a young age, proudly displayed on ‘Pavement’,a long with 2016’s seminal debut album ‘Stay In, Do Nothing’. During this time, Horror My Friend have toured nationally with the likes of Hockey Dad, Gyroscope, Die! Die! Die! (NZ) and Pity Sex (USA), among others, whilst locally supporting Violent Soho, Cold Chisel, The Cribs (UK), Swervedriver (USA) and more. In addition to this, Horror My Friend have performed at festivals such as Groovin’ The Moo, Yours & Owls Festival, BIGSOUND, Blurst of Times and Poison City Weekender, whilst garnering strong radio and media support through Triple J, Unearthed, a range of community radio stations, along with music publishers both nationally and internationally.
About this track...
The single embodies waves straight out of the 90's with strong post-punk alternative rock ques. Their noise guitar riffs and thrashing percussion are paired harmoniously with punchy lyricism drive home the message of feeling lost while also gaining confidence and ground through an understanding of not caring. The track drags an underlying reverb attitude which is re-occurring theme.
