  The Killers - When You Were Young
The Killers (i don't have to link you to them, right?) have a new single out, as you may have heard. you may have also heard Brandon Flowers say that their upcoming album, Sam's Town, is going to be the best of the year, or something to that effect. i can at least tell you that it's probably one of the most anticipated so far.

let's hope this first sample isn't any indication of what the rest of the album sounds like.

The Killers - When You Were Young

Brandon has been quoted as saying that their new sound is somewhat Springsteen-influenced; this particular example is heavy on the Bruce. for those who are fans of that, they'll eat this up. if you're not, you'll probably focus on the fact that the instrumentation is pretty good, probably the best part of the song. it's well produced, with strings and synth and changing dynamics and everything. but when it comes down to it, the thing everyone hears right away is the vocals. he sings about two notes the entire song, in a more nasaly and obnoxious tone than before, and at least for me, it brings the overall picture down a few notches. just see for yourself and tell me if i'm wrong.

Edit: yep. trouble on that one.
 
Comments:
Oh, that song. I'm interested.

but aren't you afraid of those shiny cease & desist letters when you post such a song.
just sayin.
