Dark Horses return this November with their new single, ‘XIII’, released on Tricky Spirits Records. Alongside the release, the band have unveiled an accompanying video in collaboration with Italian dancer / choreographer Király (AKA Marta Antinucci) and visual artist T.S. Sanchez. Shot in Berlin, the video depicts the coexistence of everyday life alongside the surreal, in a Fritz Lang futuristic style, with urban dystopian scenes. The Holocaust Memorial appears in the new video as a a sanctuary of emotions in an "ordered system that has lost touch with human reason".
Underpinned by an insistent, pulsing synthesizer in 'XIII', singer Lisa Elle paints a ghostly scene in which every one of us is broken down into data, our individuality and expression stripped back to numbers and algorithms.
Then as the razor-sharp guitars crash in, she urges you to run… because what else is there left to do in a world where the rich and powerful can tap deep into our inner psyche at the click of a button and the smell of a few dollars more?
To support the release of ‘XIII’, Dark Horses head out across Europe for a short run of dates with their partners in darkness, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club.
A combination of retro aesthetics, enduring lyrics and alt-rock grit.
The best music happens when artists refuse to remain stuck in their own comfort zones and creative boxes. Whenever this happens, they are free to give full range to their vision, and they can really come up with something that’s groundbreaking and personable. This is certainly the case here with Tommy Red and his brand new EP release, “I Wanna Be Exploited.”
