I have expressed just how much I love the newest album from Arcade Fire and what a poignant album ‘The Suburbs’ is for someone in their 30s reflecting back on their childhood and wondering at what point do you begin calling yourself an ‘adult’. I can’t think of a better director to communicate that loss of innocence and those inner rumblings than Spike Jonze and that is exactly what he has achieved in this music video for the title track of the album. It’s beautiful and it’s pure Spike Jonze. It also works absolutely perfectly with the music. Bravo.
