Out on March 9th is the new Editors album “Violence”, but before that the band has now released the video for their brand new single “Magazine”. The single, the band’s first in 3 years, is according to the Editors frontman Tom Smith “a pointed finger aimed at those in power…some corrupt politician or businessman…a character, and a tongue in cheek poke at the empty posturing and playing to the masses of the power hungry.” Hilary Clinton and Trump come to mind of course. The 9-track “Violence” is the 6th album from Editors, and was produced by Leo Abrahams (Wild Beasts, Florence & The Machine, Frightened Rabbit) and Editors with additional production from Benjamin John Power (Blanck Mass, Fuck Buttons) and mixed by Cenzo Townshend, except “Hallelujah (So Low)” mixed by Alan Moulder. The “Magazine” video was shot in Amsterdam by long term Editors collaborator Rahi Rezvani.

The news was confirmed by a spokesperson for the singer told who said that the “Irish and international singer Dolores O’Riordan has died suddenly in London today.” The statement further reads that “family members are devastated to hear the breaking news and have requested privacy at this very difficult time.” O’Riordan was in London for a short recording session.

No doubt about it, I’d a crush on Frozen Nation’s debut album “Dark Belgian Disco”. This band featuring Belgian and French members deals with a mix of electro-pop, Italo-disco and electroclash. The music is a happy-like danceable format mixed with some funny lyrics, but it also reveals great electronic treatments and professional production skills. This album has been one of the most refreshing productions from the past year and a band I can only, but recommend for their atypical music approach. I’d a chat with D&D – Moss + Elvis (the modular synth)… (Courtesy by Inferno Sound Diaries) Q: Let’s traditionally start by asking you who’s hiding behind Frozen Nation, how did you get in touch with each other and can you give us some brief background information about the members music background? Frozen Nation: Frozen Nation consists of D&D, Moss and Elvis. They met at ‘Spector Studio’ in Brussels, jamming with Elvis (Elvis is a unique modular synthesizer built during the 70s by an unknown engineer for Jethro Tull) and making the basic tracks for what would become “I Failed For You”, the band’s 1st single. Moss is the dark guy, the die-hard goth, the guy who can burst […]
