Erasure – The Artist
Erasure are an English synth-pop duo, consisting of singer and songwriter Andy Bell and songwriter and keyboardist Vince Clarke. They formed in London in 1985. Their debut single was “Who Needs Love Like That”. From their fourth single, “Sometimes”, the duo established themselves on the UK Singles Chart, becoming one of the most successful artists of the late 1980s to mid-1990s. From 1986 to 2007, Erasure achieved 24 consecutive Top 40 hits in the UK. By 2009, 34 of their 37 chart-eligible singles and EPs had made the UK Top 40, with 17 climbing into the Top 10. At the 1989 Brit Awards, Erasure won the Brit Award for Best British Group. The duo is most popular in their native UK and mainland Europe. The band is also popular within the LGBT community, for whom the openly gay Bell has become an icon. Erasure have penned over 200 songs and have sold over 25 million albums worldwide.
Victim of Love – The Song
‘Victim of Love’ is a song by British synthpop duo Erasure, released in 1987 as their sixth single overall. It was the third single to be lifted from the duo’s second album, The Circus, released six weeks earlier, and was remixed for single release.
The song was written by band members Vince Clarke and Andy Bell and incorporates the signature Erasure sound of uptempo rhythm, analogue synthesiser and a prominent acoustic guitar. Bell’s lyrics pertain to one’s apprehension when entering into a new love relationship. The song’s protagonist doesn’t “want to look like some kind of fool” or become a “victim of love”. Upon its release, “Victim of Love” became the second UK Top 10 single for Erasure, peaking at number seven. The song remains one of Erasure’s signature tunes and is a concert favourite.
