about

After 20 years in suspended animation, Pray TV have woken, dusted off their old guitars, and recorded a new album like its still 1996. Individually, lives have changed. Collectively, everything is the same. Musically, they’ve threaded their various dark strands of melancholic regret rock into Horizontal Life- the best album from 1996 to be released in 2016.

Reviews for previous albums:
"Strapped to a post-Joy Division bass moan, guitars several kilometres thick chime and swell while drums crash like an epileptic juggler. In the eye of a hurricane a gentle voice whispers of loves regrets" - Juke Magazine 1990

'A devilishly clever and initially sombre opus in the Joy Division tradition. It builds inexorably until you notice it's gone from moribund to thumping.....their music is an amalgam of the thrashy and languid, often unnervingly subdued - there are a few explosions, and we're never let off the hook' - Rolling Stone

“The band’s second album Paydirt is hardly troubled with the narrowed buzzsaw dynamic associated with early Husker Du, preferring a more languid bittersweetness to seep through their wingtipped grunge, a leftover influence from Joy Division’s bass led sobriety, leaving space for Aidan Halloran’s doleful, suppressed vocals to metaphorically hang themselves.” – CMJ Report
