Tonight I went to see Editors live at the Sportpaleis in Antwerp. Although they played songs from every album, and I love them all, I find -as on album- their latest work to outshine. And especially the Cuttings II bonus.
But the concert had it all: manics, electronics, enthusiasm, base drum vs. crowd clappings, a solo moment at the piano, new songs, even skyscraping flame throwers to celebrate the escape of Papillon, but above all… the songs. But I would still love to see and hear those talented guys start upsetting the arrangements of their older songs. To match the fierce variety of sounds and paces of the newer work.
In this light and on this evening, Antwerp’s become the most beautiful place I’ve seen.
