Of course, they don’t seem all that thrilled to be Canadian, which bugs me a bit. They’re apparently more proud to be from Montreal. That’s fine–whatever–it’s not like my opinion matters to them, but it definitely drives me nuts when I’m more proud that a band or artist is Canadian than they are.
Whether anyone is proud of them being Canadian though, this is a great, intriguing, creepy video by the great Spike Jonze, who is still a legend at making killer music videos, even if his full-length films seem to be missing the mark (I hated Where The Wild Things Are, even if I mildly liked his other two films).
Without further ado, here’s “The Suburbs” by Arcade Fire…
Each week in Video Hits I feature a new music video to admire, mock, and discuss. From the great to the awful, whether they’re from twenty years or twenty minutes ago.
