The Horrors have today shared a new video for their track Ghost. Taken from 2017’s critically acclaimed V, the video is an arresting visual accompaniment to one of the album’s standout tracks.

Speaking about the video, the directing duo in/out, whose previous work includes videos for Slowdive and Hercules & Love Affair explain:

The Horrors’ brief talked of madness and redemption; disguises and hidden worlds; and a feeling of being swept away.

Thermal imagery helped us represent the body at an unsettling crossroads between the familiar and the unknown. Penetrating beneath the skin, it serves as a reminder of the fragility below.

The band add the following:

'We wanted a video that represented the song visually and encapsulated the ambiguity of the lyrics. We felt that in/out perfectly captured the tense feeling of the track and created one of our favourite videos to date.'

The Horrors have just finished an extended run of brilliantly received US and Canadian dates and are set for a number of festivals this summer, including shows at Reading & Leeds, Citadel and Festival Number 6. Full tour dates are listed below and on the bands website.
