I’ve always been more of a fan of Tom Smith’s voice than his band Editors. Come on, he sounds gorgeous. And the Editors, sure, they’re good, but I never really connected. Their new single, “Magazine”, changed that.
When I first listened to the song I thought to myself: I like this huge soaring pop chorus, even though normally I’m not a fan of the overuse of synthesizers and 80s-beats in indie songs. But it is a nice juxtaposition to the much heavier verses, where the arrangements kind of break on you like a house track. The second time I listened to it, I caught myself dancing on the spot. I do not know how many times I’ve listened to the song by now, but at this point I may bellow the chorus out loud if I’m alone.
Sometimes, you need to give the song the time it deserves. Simple as that. Editors new album Violence will be out March 9, and I really can’t wait.
