You should always expect the unexpected when bands enter the Radio 1 Live Lounge but I don’t think anyone saw this one coming … following a sold out London gig on Tuesday night The Horrors recorded 2 session tracks for Radio 1; their forthcoming single ‘I can See Through You’ and a cover of Beyonce’s summer smash ‘Best Thing I Never Had’. Branding the R&B queen’s recent hit with their own distinctive sonic stamp, The Horrors have transformed ‘Best Thing I Never Had’ into a brooding, synth fueled swagger that epitomises the London quintet’s knack for challenging both themselves and their listeners.
