Song of the Day (12/9/09)

Essentially Interpol lite, Editors are a UK band that combines post-punk angst with pop accessibility. Featuring lead singer Tom Smith's baritone vocals within a brooding atmosphere dominated by pulsing percussion and wailing delay-pedaled guitars, "Bones" may not be the most original piece of music ever—for it is deeply indebted to Interpol and Joy Division—but that doesn't stop it from functioning as an altogether great song. If you enjoy this style, be sure to check out the rest of Editors' An End Has a Start, as well as their debut, The Back Room; if you hear this song and wish there more '80s electronics and synthesizers, Editors' 2009 release, In This Light and On This Evening will be more your speed. Enjoy.
