Dark Horses return this November with their new single, ‘XIII’, released on Tricky Spirits Records.
Alongside the release, the band have unveiled an accompanying video in collaboration with Italian dancer / choreographer Király (AKA Marta Antinucci) and visual artist T.S. Sanchez. Shot in Berlin, the video depicts the coexistence of everyday life alongside the surreal, in a Fritz Lang futuristic style, with urban dystopian scenes. The Holocaust Memorial appears in the new video as a a sanctuary of emotions in an “ordered system that has lost touch with human reason”.
Underpinned by an insistent, pulsing synthesizer in ‘XIII’, singer Lisa Elle paints a ghostly scene in which every one of us is broken down into data, our individuality and expression stripped back to numbers and algorithms.
Then as the razor-sharp guitars crash in, she urges you to run… because what else is there left to do in a world where the rich and powerful can tap deep into our inner psyche at the click of a button and the smell of a few dollars more?
To support the release of ‘XIII’, Dark Horses head out across Europe for a short run of dates with their partners in darkness, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club.
