Arcade Fire – ‘The Suburbs’

By  |  0 Comments

The third studio album from Arcade Fire, dubbed ‘The Suburbs’, takes listeners, no matter where they’re brought up, on one great retro trip. While the band claims that the album “is neither a love letter to, nor an indictment of, the suburbs” there are certain tinges of irony in much of the lyrics, and the music is relentlessly nostalgic, grabbing you by the hand to take you on a trip down memory lane. To provide fans with a somewhat more personal trip, Arcade Fire have created a clever interactive video for their new single ‘We Used To Wait’. Simply cut and paste into your browser http://www.thewildernessdowntown.com and follow the prompt to key in the details of the address you grew up in.
