It wouldn’t surprise you that my newest band discovery is from London. Home to such luminaries as Florence and the Machine and Bat For Lashes, this band share a similar aesthetic and sound. That is to say, they have a flair for the dramatic, and incorporate an eerie haunting mystic work around their music.
The name of the band is Hunter as a Horse. As of right now, we don’t know a whole lot about them except that their names are Mia Van Wyk and Paul Gala, and that they originally are from South Africa. You can hear a couple more songs that they posted on their SoundCloud page here. They’re all pretty great, giving off that witchy Lynchian vibe that I enjoy. Be sure to check out the video for standout track Your Darkest Hour below.
