DARK HORSES


The last eighteen months for the sonic soul art rockers DARK HORSES has been characteristically packed with both precision and abandon. Having toured extensively in Europe and Australia as hand-picked guests for the likes of Beck, Sigor Ros, Tame Impala, Kasabian and Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, the group also performed a now legendary and riotous set at the Olympic Park’s Hard Rock Calling Festival. A personal invitation to join Noel Gallagher at last years Teenage Cancer Trust benefit then followed, leading to yet another acclaimed performance at London’s Royal Albert Hall.

Meanwhile, the single ‘Radio’ found it’s way onto the BBC 6Music A-list and saw the group win Artrocker’s ‘single of the year’, while Dark Horses also contributed – along with Iggy Pop – a song to last winters ‘A Psych Christmas’ album. Dark Horses also added their version of ‘Hello I Love You’ to a Doors covers album with fellow comrades Clinic, Black Angels and Dead Meadow, and lead singer Lisa Elle found time to bring grace and guest vocals to the Jon Hopkins Mercury Music Prize nominated album ‘Immunity’.
