Ladies and gentlemen, welcome, welcome, to 75 Bands in 75 Days, where we bring you the best talent that the Pacific Northwest has to offer, one day and one band at a time. Today our journey once again leads us to Seattle, Washington, to explore the outings of one of the city’s most chaotic and noisy rock bands, Haunted Horses.
Haunted Horses is a Seattle rock trio consisting of Colin Dawson, Myke Pelly and Troy Ayala. Together these three musicians some of the most twisted, loud and ominous rock music coming out of the West Coast. Their sound pulls a lot of stylistic influence from dark post-punk, ear-melting noise rock and no wave, gothic rock, and most predominantly, industrial rock. Their sound is incredibly expansive, and has an undeniably epic feel to it at all time. They’re a band one would expect to be signed to Enemies List Home Recordings, and their sound will probably be most adored by fans of artists like Have a Nice Life, Bauhaus, and Swans (their earlier Filth-era recordings).
Haunted Horses released their debut full-length in September of last year, Watcher, which is a sub-half-hour collection of impressively-performed loud rock music. Haunted Horses have proven themselves to be one of the most promising rock bands in Washington State, and we wait with baited breath for what else they have up their sleeves.
