The guaranteed first thing to hit you about Horror My Friend is their earnest nature, and overwhelming urgency. It hits you like the fact that Michael Bay will never make a movie without explosions and terribleness.
‘Kaleidoscope’ sees Horror My Friend in top form, at their cymbal crashing, guitar thrashing, howling chorus best. They are starting to move away from their reliance on bands like Japandroids and Die!Die!Die!, and form their own addictive brand of noisy rock. Plus, there’s a ginger in the band, and that always helps. YAY! Fellow brethren!
