Arcade Fire – The Suburbs (Spike Jonze Video)

Spike Jonze directed a video for the title track to Arcade Fire’s album The Suburbs. I love how Spike is able to take an experience that feels so familiar and then twist it into something ominous and strange with only visual impressions to tell the story. It works much like short fiction where you never get the whole picture, just enough information to evoke a certain reaction, something always unfinished or beautfiully incomplete about it. The video is a nice added layer to my favorite song on the album, which like all Arcade Fire records for some reason, slowly grew into something I really liked only after multiple listens.
