The Horrors are an English rock band formed in Southend-on-Sea in 2005, consisting of lead vocalist Faris Badwan, guitarist Joshua Hayward, keyboardist and synthesizer player Tom Furse, bassist Rhys Webb, and drummer and percussionist Joe Spurgeon. Their music has been classified as garage rock, garage punk, gothic rock, shoegazing and post-punk revival.
Horrors lacks new ideas and is a post-punk cliché, their music has flat lyrics, a simple rhythm, and unremarkable guitar moves, according to Dekaloff at rateyourmusic.com
"Flat lyrics, post-punk cliché: elastic bass, simple rhythm, unremarkable guitar moves. In general, in my opinion, this work was too much praised, which served as a kind of indicator of the lack of new ideas in the rock mainstream in the past year. Indie, as they say."
