In stark contrast it’s often hard to tell what Editors are all upset about – there’s even the sneaking suspicion that it might be about nothing more serious than forgetting to renew a gym membership. On top of that there’s the even worse fear that this is flat-packed gothic mood music. Ikea post-punk.

  • Forgive me, but I find it hard to understand what you are writing about! It reads like your are soon going to have a real hangover. Mommy, don’t let your „Jungs“ grow up to become „would-be-writers‘!
