As soon as The Killers announced they’d be tackling this year’s AFL Grand Final, we knew there’d have to be some new music on the way as an accompaniment – despite the fact that they could quite easily pull off 45 minutes of Mr Brightside and literally nobody would complain.
Behold Wonderful Wonderful. You’ll have already heard the tongue-in-cheek smugness of the swaggeringly-paced, gritty disco luxe single The Man, and the rest of the album mostly follows suit; it’s a short, slower, rocky ascent into already-established Killers synth-rockerdom, that will do nought but enhance that One Day in September. Be sure to check it out – it’s a wonderful wonderful time.
Wonderful Wonderful is out September 22 via Universal.
