Arcade Fire – “Afterlife”

Watching a new Arcade Fire video isn’t a bad way to start your weekend.

True to form, viewers aren’t subjected to frivolous images, but more of a thought provoking tale.  Director Emily Kai Bock takes you behind the scenes of the lives of three family members: a teenage boy, his little brother and the father of the two.  While the three lead very different lives when not together, there’s one common theme that can only be their deceased mother and wife.  See what I mean?

I’m looking forward to the other visual gems that are undoubtedly to come from Reflektor (Merge).
