Following 2015’s In Dream, The Editors are back for their sixth studio album Violence. To get the new year off with a bang they’ve also dropped a new single ‘Magazine’.
A dazzlingly bright, yet barbed opening salvo, ‘Magazine’ marks an intriguing stylistic shift for Editors. The single, the band’s first in three years, is an anthemic pop song that savagely attacks the empty gestures and posturing of those in power.
Talking about ‘Magazine’, Editors front man Tom Smith says “‘Magazine’ is a pointed finger aimed at those in power…some corrupt politician or businessman…a character, and a tongue in cheek poke at the empty posturing and playing to the masses of the power hungry.”
Built around a rousing chorus, swelling keys and crunching, industrial chords, ‘Magazine’ is a muscular, dynamic call-to-arms. Sure to whet the appetite for Violence and strike an emotional chord with their legions of fans, ‘Magazine’ demonstrates an ambition from Editors that their latest work is destined for the biggest stages this summer.
