Amoeba Review

03/06/2018

Editors’ sound has always evolved from album to album. Understandably so, as a 16-year career demands innovation or else risks stagnating into a formula outgrown by its audience. From the early Interpol worship of The Back Room to the chilly synth pop of Depeche Mode on In This Light And On This Evening and up through the U2-meets-Pearl-Jam-by-way-of-Echo-&-The-Bunnymen stadium ambitions of The Weight Of Your Love, Editors have never been shy of embracing a malleable approach to their moody post punk. This doesn’t change a bit on their newest release, as Violence keeps the band looking forward. In fact, this might be their most commercially ambitious album yet, unafraid to soak up influences from contemporary rock heavyweights such as Coldplay and Muse, among others. Yet before you accuse the band of selling out, realize that this pop-minded approach is only half of the equation. Editors take undeniable hooks and hits and slather them all over in a noisy, industrial sheen, and the whole album is imbued with a maximalist streak. Songs seem to quadruple in volume as the chorus hits, overdriving every instrument imaginable in the pursuit of the most massive sound possible while still catchy enough for FM radio waves. It’s not subtle, nor is it supposed to be. For those who like pleasure with pain, it's pop ecstasy.
