We’d almost forgotten how much we love Arcade Fire‘s The Suburbs and then this video came along and reminded us just how amazing they are, especially when paired with Spike Jonze.

It’s a pretty dark video shot in Austin Texas over the course of a week when the band traveled with the director back in August just after we saw them at Oshega and the album was released in North America.

Watch “The Suburbs” video above which follows a pack of 15-year-olds around their suburban neighbourhood.
