Line Up

Hailing from mixed geography - Sweden, Italy, Brighton and London – Dark Horses take their cues from a similarly expansive array of sources, blending psychedelia, rock and electronica with moving image, monochrome lighting and photography.

Sylph-like and otherworldly, frontwoman Lisa Elle has previously been described as ‘a holy communion of Grace Slick and Siouxsie Sioux’, while at the same time channelling an intriguing echo of Bowie’s Thin White Duke. Flanked by her bandmates, Bobby Waterson (guitar / keys), Anastasia Zio (bass), David Wheeldon (guitar) and Steve Ingham (drums), they, along with other collaborators, underpin the Dark Horses tenet of contrast, paradox, and reflection.

“Dark Horses succeed in creating their own world. Not since The Horrors debuted have we seen so much attention to visual detail.” – Mojo

“A series of lullabies underpinned by synths and slow, droning basslines befits the mythological symbolism and imagery that accompanies it.” – Dazed & Confused
