“Cold” Editors

Editors have unveiled the video for “Cold”, the fourth single taken from their sixth studio album Violence, released in March via Play It Again Sam. The video, directed by celebrated artist Rahi Rezvani, was shot in Iceland and stars US ballet dancer Drew Jacoby. It’s dramatic, yet stark style perfectly compliments one of Violence’s standout moments. The band are currently midway through their UK tour, which culminates in a headline show at O2 Academy Brixton on October 24th.

“Cold” is described as a desolate yet beautiful cry of longing and this is reflected in the video, fittingly filmed in the barren beauty of Iceland. Vocalist Tom Smith describes the track as “the comfort and connection still found in a dying relationship. A break up song of two people not wanting to give up on the relationship” and director Rahi Rezvani portrays this poignantly, using ballet dancer Drew Jacoby’s gracefulness and Smith’s trademark operatic spasms to portray two different sides of a couple that are both together and painfully apart.

The release of the video comes during Editors’ current UK tour, which sees them visit 14 cities in 18 days, coming to a head at O2 Academy Brixton on October 24th. The Autumn tour dates follow a busy summer of live shows for Editors, which has seen them support The Cure at their huge BST Hyde Park show on July 7th, play Manchester’s Neighborhood Festival on May 27th and headline the Werchter Classic on July 14th, topping a bill that also contained Kraftwerk and The National.
