It seems that the indie-rock bands love the groove and the new releases prove it! Arcade Fire are back with a disco-driven tune, with Abba-reminisce strings, with a groove that you can dance and slide over, a great choir and some lyrics that we really adore. They talk about how real life and how people believe they have and enjoy everything, when in fact it’s a driven world we live in. I really love the part:
“Every song that I’ve ever heard
Is playing at the same time, it’s absurd
And it reminds me, we’ve got everything now
We turn the speakers up till they break
‘Cause every time you smile it’s a fake
Stop pretending, you’ve got… Everything now”
On May 31, the band released the lead single “Everything Now” from their fifth album, on 12″ vinyl, selling it at a merchandise stall at Primavera Sound festival in Barcelona which they headlined. A day later, a mysterious live stream “Live From Death Valley” was launched and the band released a music video for the song, appearing to have been shot in Death Valley, California.
Turn the speakers up (as they say on the lyrics) and enjoy the tune of the week!
