Arcade Fire – The Suburbs

Arcade Fire – “The Suburbs”

The Arcade Fire have been critical darlings since the arrival of their debut full length Funeral in 2004. The follow-up Neon Bible came out to great acclaim in 2007, and the fervor surrounding this upcoming release, The Suburbs, has been greater than almost any release this year. This song bounces along with a more pop arrangement than their earlier work, though the haunting strings and signature vocals of frontman Win Butler keep it in tune with the vibe they created on the first two records.
