Life Is A Fear Fan Memory
Get into the groove.
From : Lemming
Hey all you sun-dodging, grumpy goth types! Throw off your oversized black jumpers, release your hair from its back-combed shackles and put on your boogie shoes. It's time to allow your caboose to get loose to the sound of one of Editors' more grooveable (is that a word?) singles. What does "Life is a Fear" tell us? That there's a frustrated disco dancer in this band..,actually there's possibly more than one, and every once in a while they allow their true personality to shine like the mirrorball you know they long to spin underneath with abandon. This song is an existential crisis backed by 80's electronica, and it's awesome. I feel like Editors have yet to write their definitive "dance tune", but this was certainly a graceful quick-step in that direction. They came pretty close with Frankenstein, but I reckon it's a matter of time before they realise their hip-shaking potential. The indie ghetto they landed in with the release of The Back Room seems an awfully long way away now.
