Originally available on the Japanese import version of their second full length, Primary Colours, The Horrors’ “Whole New Way” recently got a studio re-tweak courtesy of Rodaidh McDonald, a 7″ single, and a video. And while the video itself offers little in the way of groundbreaking performances (Think any number of clips you saw on 120 Minutes from the early ’90s where an English band wanders around a desolate landscape, lip-synching along the way, pausing occasionally for a glamor shot, or two), the song continues the band’s transformation from short shelf-life, horror punk to something worthwhile and intriguing — A fresh, nuanced take on classic bands like The Cure and The Psychedelic Furs.
