“Right in My Face” by A Horse With a Horn”

A Horse With a Horn is the solo project of self-proclaimed queerdo, Derek Wanker. An intriguing individual who has transformed his struggles in life by focusing on love and embracing his individuality.

“Right in My Face” is the first song from his debut album “Mindless”. The album name refers to the mindless games people play in relationships. “Right in My Face” is the perfect introduction for the message A Horse with A Horn wishes to convey through his album.

The song tells the story of how love can be completely blind, and how we can so easily miss what is right in front of us. Wanker poetically tells us this with his catchy lyrics; “I should have seen it coming, it was right in my face”.

I was instantly captivated by the dramatic musical introduction of big synths, electronic beats, and claps, which gradually increase in intensity before the first verse.

Wankers soulful voice pairs wonderfully with the combined style of modern pop and electroclash, which is where his musical roots originate.

Wanker conveys to his listeners the highs and lows of his life’s experiences through his music and lyrics. And I believe his honesty and openness will connect with many people.

If you enjoy music from artists such as Fischerspooner and Ladytron, then A Horse with A Horn will fit perfectly on your playlist.
