We’ll probably infuriate The Killers’ purists when we reveal that our three favourite tracks by the band are ‘Human’, ‘Somebody Told Me’ and the Lindbergh Palace remix of ‘When We Were Young’. What!? No ‘Mr Brightside’!?
New single ‘Runaways’ seems to mesh various elements of all our favourite tunes together into a tight four minute package that’s stuffed with plenty of heaving, grinding guitar, so it’s a whole lot rock and roll.
Conversely, there’s also some synthesised electronic wizardry going on behind the scenes, so it’s also a little bit pop.
The clip’s stripped right back to bare basics, with just some splashes of green screen CGI to keep things interesting. Most of the focus is on Brandon. We guess that’s no bad thing.
