Dark Horses

Dark Horses are a psychedelic rock group from Brighton, England, with outposts in London and the Italian city of Bologna.

Drawing influence from the likes of The Velvet Underground, CAN and Gang Of Four, their current lineup is Lisa Elle (vocals), Bobby Waterson (synth/guitar), Steve Ingham (drums), David Wheeldon (guitar), Anastasia Zio (bass) and Ali Tollervey (camera). They also work closely with a diverse group of visual artists, who add a sharp edge to their shadowy, atmospheric music.

Their first two albums – Black Music and Hail Lucid State – were both produced by Death In Vegas’ Richard Fearless, and received widespread critical acclaim, leading to tours with Sigur Rós, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club and The Dandy Warhols.

Their pandemic-delayed third album, produced by Bob Earland (Radiophonic Workshop, Roots Manuva) is due for release later in 2022.
