Beyond the austere atmospherics and doleful imagery they’re known for, Editors have always had an inarguable facility for choruses huge enough to hit the outer reaches of a packed festival field. That secret sauce comes to the fore on the Birmingham five-piece’s sixth record: an enlivening comeback brimming with industrial grooves and sparkling power-pop anthems. “Cold” sets the tone with its riffy, widescreen bounce and “Darkness at the Door” has a technicolour, electronic shimmer. “Magazine” may be the apex, though. An exhilarating, call-to-arms originally written when the band nearly split, it instead seals their joyous reinvention.
