Race Horses

Welsh alt-pop quintet Race Horses, who released their first LP ‘Furniture’ towards the end of last year, are to cease being a band. They’ve cancelled all their forthcoming live dates, bar one last show at Cardiff’s Clwb Ifor Bach on 9 Feb. Oh dear.

They say: “We are sorry to announce that we are splitting up as band. We would like to sincerely thank everyone who has supported us, come to our gigs and listened to our music. We have enjoyed the past few years and are proud of what we have done together, but it’s the end of the road for us as a band. It is clear that, creatively, we are bound for different places”.
