This new Editors album (In This Light And On This Morning) is all delicious synthesizer gloss, the "New Order" to their "Joy Division" if you will. It's still sexy, but darker and more polished, as if someone told singer Tom Smith that he needed to get out of his funk and sent him trotting/sulking off to the nearest discoteque. I don't think we're in Munich anymore, Toto.
The group will be in NYC next February, at (blah) Terminal 5. If they could throw a Brooklyn date onto this tour, I would be way happier about things. Or maybe they could play the Warsaw again (do bands still play there??)... pierogies + songs about the futuristic apocalypse = ace.
Here is the video for the UK single Papillon. Let me summarize this for you: Guy is running (ladies, he's hot). Guy runs. And runs. Then some other guys join him in the running. Run run run run run. Is there a deeper concept here that I'm missing? Probs.
Editors - Papillon
Editors - Eat Raw Meat = Blood Drool
