We caught up with Horsey to find out a little more about them via some quick-fire questions as they gear up to head into the studio and record their highly anticipated LP later this week.

Born from the same underbelly that gave the world King Krule, Goat Girl, Black Midiand countless other genre-defying acts, Horsey is south London’s wild-eyed new hope. An uncanny fusion of jazz and DIY pop sits at the core of Horsey creating a propulsive, utterly bizarre sound, one that can’t be tied to their contemporaries.

Having built their reputation up solely from word of mouth over the course of 2018, Horsey kicked off the year with a split single on Japan’s Big Love records. Leading the charge is ‘Bread and Butter’ a surreal track with a self-directed video to match. While ‘Bread and Butter’ seems to see frontmen Theo McCabe and Jacob Read (best known as Jerkcurb) unveil a story of failed romance and lost faith, lyrically Horsey prefer to work in broad strokes, conjuring unsettling images and often deliberately nonsensical refrains. Meanwhile, jagged guitar lines and chaotic drums battle it out under chunky bass lines laid down by Jack Marshall. The result is uncategorizable but undeniably catchy. ‘Bread and Butter’ serves as the band’s first official release in over a year.

Known as much for their sporadic, off the wall live shows – having toured with King Krule and Hinds already –2019 will see Horsey retake the reigns of the South London scene, with new track ‘Til Then My Love’ accompanying ‘Bread and Butter’ as the first taste of new music from the group in over a year. 2019 will also see the group head the studio to record their highly-anticipated debut album, bringing their frantic energy to a long form project for the first time.
