Can you ever really trust a Dark Horse? Well you can if they’re a collective of shadowy, fearless leather clad art rockers fronted by enigmatic singer songwriter Lisa Elle. Dark Horses are without question the coolest band to emerge from Brighton and they roar back into view with ‘ Live on Hunger’ the first single to emerge from their forthcoming album ‘Hail Lucid State.’ It’s a magnificent return and an impassioned call to arms to dark horses everywhere.
Throbbing bass lines and a mesmerising psychedelic motorik chug underpin a tune that conjures a miasma of shadowy doomed grandeur. The band steadily open up the throttle as the song shifts, changes gear and explodes into life, led as ever by Lisa Elle’s strident yet seductive vocals. It’s a beguiling maelstrom of sensual, decadent carnal art pop embellished with swirling serrated guitars, pulsating electronic flourishes which affords an intriguing glimpse into what treasures may lie in store when their much-anticipated second album is finally released.
‘Hail Lucid State’ will surely be the album that gains them wider recognition as they continue to cast their dark shadows across the UK and beyond. This is all we hoped for and more from a band whose creativity is burning brighter than ever. They ARE the band you’ve been waiting for. Embrace the darkness.
