Sam Hill - 13th Sept 2013

Anton Corbijn - a man who may have done the odd music video or two over his time - presents the alternative to interactive music videos for the James Murphy-produced return of epic indie-oddities Arcade Fire.

And when you have to offer the alternative to something, you do it with papier-maché heads, mirror suits and good old fashioned black and white.  Throw in a dance routine (no matter how bizarre) and you've nailed it.  

The video sees the band donning their surreal craft-fair heads before pursuing a mirror-ball man, confronting themselves and even having enough time to perform in the back of a van. Not to be taken too seriously...
