Warhorses / Press

"Somehow, I’d managed to not see Warhorses before but they were worth the wait at the New Dodge. Really dark and moody in an ’80s sort of way, but with a modern psychedelic edge. It was cool when they insisted that the spotlights be switched off so that we could enjoy their dry ice. Great tunes, good show."

"Think of dark, brooding trance-rock…that’s Warhorses. They’re tempestuous, they’re hypnotic, and you will groove to the swirl of fluid and embodied melodies"

"Hypnotic. Alluring. Captivating. Warhorses embellish a sense of wonder with their music; they drag you in and intoxicate you with a dark trance, a compelling soul and deep lyrics."

“Warhorses are "beautiful and unsettling all at once, like stoking something primal in you, the wolf that wants to get out after midnight and howl up to the moon in meditative reverence for the dark rock gods of Sabbath or Zeppelin or even more modern psychedelia styles like ..Spacemen3 or..Low"”

"......Warhorses are an incredibly impressive psychedelic rock band. They will no doubt continue to progress and push their genres boundaries; hopefully forcing it into the limelight and out of its relative obscurity. Keep an eyes and ears on this group, something tells me they can’t be stopped."

“Detroit's been one of the most important cities in the history of popular music, whatever branch of it your personal taste fits. Warhorses are continuing the tradition by making heavy, psych-rock tunes like 'Rumble Seat' which is all low frequencies and blasts of organ. It's like early Factory Records releases mixed with MC5 and is taken from their latest EP 'Song of the Month'.”

“If the Stone Roses were metal they’d sound like Warhorses. Snarly, trance-y vocals and heavy riffs create something this genuinely exciting (yes, genuinely exciting).”

“Warhorses are taking the Flaming Lips-esque approach of releasing a new downloadable track every month. The last two, “Rumble Seat Master” and “Horse #5” (self-released) are impressive examples of psychedelic, sludgy retro-rock that seem to see the bands exploring a slightly more subtle way to get their message across than beating people around the heads. It’s interesting to see these obviously talented musicians progress.”

“Heavy as fuck trance rockers Warhorses sent over a new song this week, “Move”. It’s hella good too – pulsing beats and loops, snarly vocals and an evil vibe. Love it.”
