Editors – Smokers Outside the Hospital Doors

I mentioned Editors some time ago – good grief, it was late 2005! Anyway, at the time, I had positive things to say about their debut album The Back Room, which still sounds rather good to me.

And now they’re back. This single (out in a couple of weeks) is the opening track on their forthcoming second album, and it’s quite excellent. They’ve taken all their existing Editorness, turned the knobs up a bit, and produced a track which sounds like somebody grew up on Joy Division[1] and then expanded from there. You can see the video on the official site – crank up the volume and enjoy it. :smile:
