Single Review – The Killers – Some Kind of Love

After previous singles; Vegas heavy ‘The Man’ and ‘Run For Cover’ The Killers release new single ‘Some Kind Of Love’ ahead of their fifth album ‘Wonderful, Wonderful,’ Sept 22nd.Opening from resonance to a soothing lullaby, like watching a rainstorm in a desert the track has a very intimate feel. Far more ethereal than previous singles it is an outpouring of adoration for both its inspiration Brian Eno’s ‘An Ending (Ascent)’ from the 1983 album ‘Apollo: Atmospheres and Soundtracks,’ – the track weaves its way through the same chord progression – and Brandon Flowers wife Tana, who copes with PTSD stemming from childhood trauma. Proving just how personal The Killers latest album is, Flowers played the songs to Tana in order to get her approval before okaying them from the record. A subtle shimmer of distant guitar lines and Brandon Flowers familiar vocal creates such a calming atmosphere things almost reach a meditative state before the emotional ending lyric; ‘I can’t do this alone, we need you at home, there’s so much to see and we know that you’re strong.’
