Watch The Horrors share intense, unsettling video for ‘Ghost’

The track’s taken from last year’s ‘V’ record.

The Horrors released their fifth album - appropriately titled ‘V’ - last year, and have now shared a new video for one of its highlights, ‘Ghost’.

An intense, unsettling clip, the new black-and-white video perfectly encapsulates the track’s fearsome, claustrophobic nature.

Speaking of the new video, the band say: “We wanted a video that represented the song visually and encapsulated the ambiguity of the lyrics. We felt that in/out perfectly captured the tense feeling of the track and created one of our favourite videos to date.”

Directing duo in/out add: “The Horrors’ brief talked of madness and redemption; disguises and hidden worlds; and a feeling of being swept away.

“Thermal imagery helped us represent the body at an unsettling crossroads between the familiar and the unknown. Penetrating beneath the skin, it serves as a reminder of the fragility below.”

The Horrors are set to play a host of summer festivals, beginning at this weekend’s Citadel in London’s Gunnersbury Park.
