Music - The Editors and Butterfly Effects

I am taking a chance here, presenting Editors in this theme 'Music Break', - for I do not know them. I fell for their video ‘Papillion’ two years ago, - as presented in the Extra UU. That is the only song I have heard from them. However, this concert looks good I am looking forward to this Friday Night Live.

Biographically, Editors is an English rock band, previously known as ‘Pilot, The Pride and Snowfield’. They released two platinum studio albums, five in total, with several million sales. Their debut album ‘The Back Room’ received a Mercury Prize nomination. ‘An End Has a Start’ went to number 1 in the UK Album Chart and earned the band a Brit Awards nomination for best British Band. It also spawned another Top 10 hit single. ‘In This Light and on This Evening’ went straight to number 1 in the UK Album Chart. ‘The Weight of Your Love’, followed by self-produced ‘In Dream’ in 2015.

Editors have consistently enjoyed sold-out tours and numerous headlining festival slots. Their brand of dark indie rock is commonly compared to the sound of bands such as Echo & the Bunnymen, Joy Division, Interpol, The Chameleons and U2.

Extra UU Editors – Papillon + Lyrics

UU 2014.okt.24: “The band ‘Editors’ was unknown to me until I saw this video. It gives several association. First of all, the band’s name brings thoughts about the necessary qualitative re-writing of censored history in order to plan better for the future. Next, Papillion is a butterfly and probably a pet name for the writer’s girl, which he is trying to comfort in a harsh situation. Furthermore, a ‘butterfly effect’ is an expression to an idea and philosophy that one change in a butterfly’s flight can cause a cascade of changes globally. Moreover, - running from or to what - alone – together – alone – disappear - in faded colors like black & white. “It kicks like a sleep twitch”. That’s 3x3 5D poetry - indeed.”

(The 5D theory is first mentioned in UU 2013.april.19 in Norwegian. The 3x3 psychosocial model was extended to 3^3 (i.e. 3x3x3x) was first mentioned in UU 2014.aug.08, elaborated in UU 2015.mars.13.)
