The Horrors are on the cover of DIY’s May 2014 magazine. Four albums in, better than ever - here exists a group incapable of going backwards.

This month’s cover story runs through The Horrors’ early days as divisive, unpredictable types to one of the most important bands in the UK.

Our new issue also arrives in new paper (it smells really good - just don’t sniff the thing too much in public). There are lots of exciting changes happening at DIY over the next month - keep your eyes peeled.

Elsewhere in the new issue, Tune-Yards triumphantly casts aside niggling doubts with her new ‘Nikki Nack’ record.

There’s also Thumpers, going big Stateside and making sure they have an impact over here too.

Sharon Van Etten discovers a newfound confidence and Chromeo stay up all night to get poppy, working their socks off after ‘soft rock’’s sudden resurgence.

In news, we speak to the likes of Owen Pallett, Lykke Li, Little Dragon and Sam Smith about their excellent new records.

In Reviews, DIY delivers the verdict on new albums from The Black Keys, The Horrors, Wolf Alice, Foxes and Swans, with two five-star ratings being dished out.

Neu puts the spotlight on exciting new bands Broods, Hozier, Tove Lo and The Acid. All that, plus lots more.
