Arcade Fire Releases Teaser VideoBy: Alexandria Sardam - September 4, 2013
Canadian indie rock band, Arcade Fire released a teaser video for what it seems to be titled, “Reflektor.” The video flashes:Sept. 9, 9 p.m., the likely release date of the video.
The band has been pretty hush-hush about the details of their latest album. The band’s fourth record is due out Oct. 29th on Merge.
The video-that debuted today-opens with budding synthesizers that slowly crescendo along with the steady beat of bongos. The video creeps away from filtered shots of hands preparing on keys to black-and-white shots of rolling ocean waves. The mood of the video seems to fit perfectly with the band’s sound.
There’s a lot riding on this next album for the Canadian super-group since their last album, “The Suburbs” won the Grammy for Album of the Year.
James Murphy, the former frontman for LCD Soundsystem produced the band’s latest album. This however isn’t the first time the band has collaborated with Murphy. Some of the band performed and appeared in the LCD Soundsystem, “Shut Up and Play the Hits” documentary.
Arcade Fire is comprised of husband and wife Win Butler and Régine Chassagne, along with Will Butler, Richard Reed Parry, Tim Kingsbury, Jeremy Gara, and Sarah Neufeld. The band first made waves in 2004 with the release of their critically acclaimed debut album, “Funeral.”
