The Hor­rors

In­die dar­lings’ Lu­mi­nous fur­ther hones their dreamy prog blue­print

Australian T3 - - PLAY -

Start­ing out as Southend’s pre­mier Cramps looka­likes, The Hor­rors swiftly grad­u­ated to some­thing rather more adult, de­vel­op­ing a para­dox­i­cally groovy, fu­ne­real grandeur that re­called early Sim­ple Minds or even, at a push, New Or­der im­me­di­ately af­ter Ian Cur­tis died. On Lu­mi­nous, they layer greater com­plex­ity into their sound with re­sults that are stu­diously dark with­out be­com­ing lu­di­crous or dirgy. $20 CD, $17 MP3, out now
