Depeche Mode – “Should Be Higher” Live Video

By Tom Breihan / August 22, 2013

Even if you’re the type who doesn’t go to too many arena-sized shows, Depeche Mode is the sort of bigger band you should seriously consider going to see when they’re near you. Their catalog is lousy with classics, and even when they’re playing newer songs, they bring the sort of presence that you can’t fake. In person, Dave Gahan’s leather-club-Jim-Morrison persona, for instance, makes a whole lot more sense. Case in point: Longtime collaborator Anton Corbijn recently directed a live video of the band, as they play “Should Be Higher,” a deep cut from their 2012 album Delta Machine, and it shows off levels of swagger that not too many of the band’s peers can match.
