There’s more from Editors today, this time ‘a song of joy and escapism – a cartoon song for the freaks, the different and for the night’ according to Tom Smith.

The brand new tune Frankenstein quickly follows on from the Blanck Mass Sessions album which had itself, initially on Record Store Day 2019, given fans a fresh take on their 2018 album Violence. They’ve been touring regularly too, and Live4ever was at the Marble Factory gig in Bristol towards the end of last year:

“The new songs from this year’s Violence mixed well with the older efforts, as did the two songs included from the previous album. Being newer numbers, they got a more muted reaction despite having had six months to bed into fans’ consciousness (but then it was a Monday). Regardless, there is enough quality there to bode well for the next tour when they are more established. This fact was brought into microcosm when the mighty Papillon was followed by Belong, a slower new album track.”

“It was a brave choice to do so, but it’s good to see they have faith in their newer material. Editors finished the main set with recent single Magazine, which like the rest of the album has a lightness of touch not worn since their second record but once again, its newness provoked a subdued response.”
