Bitesize : Editors – The Weight Of Your Love

Seems the band Editors have been going through an identity crisis of late. Labelled as Joy Division soundalike originally they seem to remind us on the new album, ‘Weight Of Your Love‘, of a few other bands instead. Saying that the artists they resemble aren’t to be sniffed at either. The opening song ‘The Weight‘ is most definitely a direction they should follow and probably the best track on the album. Well crafted as it goes through various stages during its life. Tom Smith makes you feel enlightened when he sings “everyday I pray…I’m the first to go” that leads into choral backing vocals. ‘Sugar‘ could have been taken from the last Dead Can Dance album whereas the new single ‘A Ton Of Love‘ harks back to the early Bunnymen material. Whilst ‘What Is This Thing Called Love‘ resembles a Coldplay ballad and like all the previously mentioned songs they’re very good indeed. Lastly I must name check the very bouncy ‘Formaldehyde‘ that will have you singing the chorus involuntarily. If they’re trying to find their own trademark sound then it’s been well worth the experiment as there’s plenty here to keep you listening. 8/10.
