Editors - In This Light & On This Evening (Kitchenware/Sony)


Deciding to bring synths to the fore and letting the guitars fade into the background hasn’t done the macabre Editors any harm. Instead, their employment of synthetics has made their music more emotionally charged. In This Light & On This Evening is a magical album of dramatic stories and heartfelt melodies. The title track charts the deathly beauty of the English capital over swirling synths and heavy guitars, whilst Papillon is an uplifting effort and You Don’t Know Love is a heart wrenching tale. This is a dark yet delicious long player from Editors.
