The Verve were cool-as-ice alphas in the Creation Records/shoegaze scene. Then they went 10 percent more pop, released ‘Urban Hymns,' and 'Bittersweet Symphony' became one of the biggest songs of the '90s. Having moved beyond their black-clad horror-punk phase, British band the Horrors have clearly discovered shoegaze. Which means right now they sound sorta like a more rocking post-millennium Echo and the Bunnymen. If any Brit band is going to come up with the next 'Bittersweet Symphony,' odds are good it’ll be them.
DNA Evidence: It’s hard to argue they’re not spiritual brothers when you watch the Verve’s 'Blue' and the Horrors’ 'Still Life.'
