It seems that everything that Arcade Fire touch turns to musical gold. Since the critical acclaim afforded to their first album – Funeral – in 2004, every piece of music released by the Canadian rock six-piece has been slavishly picked apart and praised to the hilt. With good reason too – they're one of the most interesting, eloquent and diverse rock bands today.
Their latest album – a two-part behemoth called Reflektor (yes, that is the spelling) – was released last year to now-typical acclaim – and the new single from the album is released next Monday (May 26th). “We Exist” is a big funkadelic slice of what they do best. Have a listen.
