The Killers Would Like You To Raise Your Hands
ARTIST: The KillersTITLE: “Human”WEB DEBUT: Sept. 22, 2008
ONE-LISTEN VERDICT: It would appear that the Las Vegas band took a few lessons from the reception of their second album, Sam’s Town, for their forthcoming full-length–namely, tone down the messy production, and bring the anthems that were made to be played over the closing credits of teen-centric rom-coms (like “Read My Mind”) to the forefront. “Human” is a slowly building slice of sweet synthpop, complete with big fake-string build right before the final chorus, and Brandon Flowers harnessing his weak voice in such a way that he sounds even more vulnerable. I have little doubt that “Human” will score a love scene on Gossip GIrl by the end of the month.
