I caught this on KCRW this morning and it blew me away. More uplifting than similar sounding Editors tracks, a cracking kick drum driving the track along with plenty of anthemic licks and bass. Im expecting this to get some serious remix treatment once the album gets released on 27th of January but in its current state, its a cracker. A guaranteed chart killer this one.
