Editors have shared their latest single, ‘Kiss’. It’s lifted from their upcoming seventh album EBM, their first with Benjamin John Power (aka Blanck Mass) as a full-time member. The song’s accompanying video was conceptualized by guitarist Justin Lockey and directed by Lockey’s brother’s production company Hand Held Cine Club. The clip features dancers Harry Ondrak-Wright and Rory Macleod, with choreography from Sophia Hurdley. Watch and listen below.
“The idea of this video came out of a want to do something simple and abstract that didn’t read too deep into the lyrics or any kind of blow by blow literal take on the lyrics,” Lockey explained in a statement. “It was more about using the title to spark a theme to work on, using movement as the core medium. The idea I landed on would be to show the story of two souls constantly attracting and repelling each other, never quite fully coming together… until ultimately they succumb to being intertwined together for better or for worse.”
EBM arrives on September 23 via Play It Again Sam. ‘Kiss’ follows previous cuts ‘Heart Attack’ and ‘Karma Climb’.
