| HORLA |Follow Up Their Debut Single with the Cinematic Hit “Lifeblood”

With their second single “Lifeblood”, up and coming Manchester-based powerhouse | HORLA | has made my job feel slightly redundant. There’s simply no alluding to the deftly rhythmic ferocity which is included in the follow-up to their debut single “Into the Void”.

Lifeblood kicks off with an intensely cinematic prelude which Ramin Djawadi himself may as well have composed. Lifeblood then evolves into overwhelmingly dynamic Alt Rock which will throw you right back to the 00s when Indie Rock still had teeth which would clamp down on you and compel you to scream the lyrics in whichever sticky venue you happened to find yourself in. But despite the raw, unadulterated power of Lifeblood, | HORLA | has still allowed the single to run through under captivating, melodious choruses.

| H O R L A | – Into the Void: Manchester-Based Atmospherically Mesmerising Alt Rock

Up and coming Manchester-based Alt Rock artist| H O R L A | made their debut release on April 13th with their single “Into the Void”. Instead of being driven to assimilate any former Manchester sound, they strove to test the boundaries of a plethora of genres, pushing guitar-led music further into the future.

Starting off with a Post-Punk style prelude which will make any fans of the Editors prick up their ears, the track soon progresses into a doomy, swampy mix of crashing guitars all exuding the perfect amount of energy to bleed into the anthemic grips of Into the Void.

With each seamless transgression of sound, you’re left to appreciate the prodigal vision behind Into the Void. For a single to deliver ambiance alongside an irresistible offering of ominous tonality and piercingly sharp metal in one arrangement is nothing short of awe-inspiring.
