I often feel that lyric videos were made for me and my fellow kids of the 80s and 90s . If you turned teenager in Smash Hits’s heyday then you too will recall tearing eagerly at the perforated edges of the lyrics to various Sean Paul belters and trying desperately (but to no avail) to learn every word so that you could sing along to Top of the Pops come Friday.
The Horrors have done a mighty fine job offering their version of the lyric video with the visual accompaniment to “I See You,” the first song from their new album Luminous which will land country-wide on 5 May. The video sees images abstracted by the rippling water they’re projected on to, giving a wobbly, marbled visual effect which perfectly reflects the careful discordance of the track. Simple and stylish and very much in their own style, it promises to be the first of great things to come from the new album.
