Thoughts on Arcade Fire’s New Single “The Suburbs”

Arcade Fire is set to release their third LP this August called The Suburbs and the first single is now out under the same title as the album. In comparison to what we have heard from this Montreal based musical group The Suburbs is less sweeping than say Windowsill or Neon Bible. The track has more of a gentle feel to it as if the band has moved passed their, “I’m an angry artist” phase and have begun their “I’m an awesome rock star!” phase. Withholding any final judgments on the album, but if the single is any indication of what is to come (and it usually is) we are in for a different kind of Arcade Fire.
