The Horrors, known for their exciting stylistic leaps between albums, are sticking with the wooshing psychedelia of their most recent record Skying. That's the case, at least, on "I See You," the first song from their fourth album Luminous. It's as if every band member were instructed to make their instrument sound like how a witch's hands look as they wave over a crystal ball. Except these hands don't have the warts and liver spots of raw sonics, but instead are polished, like a French model's. It's like a fortune being told in reverse: at seven and a half minutes, the band spend a long time adding veil after starry veil begging to be pulled back to reveal some kind of truth.

The Horrors' new album Luminous is out on May 5th via XL Recordings.
