Published Jul 17, 2017The Horrors are set to come back into our lives with their new album V, and to get us extra stoked on the album, the band have now shared a new video for the LP's lead single "Machine."
As you'll soon witness, the clip is a creepy as all hell, thanks to some seriously far-out visuals from director Jon Emmony. In a statement, Emmony explained his creation with the following:
The creatures, formed from sections cut and twisted from insects, crustaceans and bone are arranged in sculptural compositions inspired by artists such as Hieronymus Bosch; finding the surreal within mixed forms and scales. The movement for the creatures is powered through generated simulations – randomised numbers and splines are generated and the position of each creature along these splines are calculated; seemingly without reason but born from the choices of software.
If left, taken away from an edit, the creatures would continue to exist and their movements would evolve. Simulated hair adapts to changing wind speeds and directions, again manipulated by randomised mathematics. For me this was an exciting way to create digital imagery as having an element of control removed and then decided by a computer seemed fitting with the track. Machines inside machines.

V is due out on September 22 via Wolftone/Caroline.
