4. A Ton Of Love –Editors taken from 2013 album “The Weight Of Your Love” (PIAS)
Hailing from Birmingham, England, the Editors have been together for a decade now. Their debut album, 2005’s The Back Room drew comparisons to post-punk legends Joy Division, thanks in part to lead singer Tom Smith’s uncanny vocal resemblance to Ian Curtis. The album was a hit and Editors took their place along with contemporaries such as Interpol and Bloc Party as one of the new millennium’s most promising bands. After a line-up shake-up that saw the departure of founding guitarist Chris Urbanowicz, the group has just released their fourth album, The Weight Of Your Love, recorded in Nashville, Tennessee.
