Whenever I give advice, I always tell the recipient to try, to always give it a go, other wise you’ll never know unless you try. Arcade Fire is a band that exemplifies fearlessness, a band willing to try anything regardless of the outcome. Fresh off their Grammy winning album The Suburbs, Arcade Fire began writing for Reflektor back in 2011. With James Murphy (LCD Soundsystem), and long time producer Mark Davus (Coldplay, Mumford & Sons) at the forefront, you could tell Reflektor was going to be something special from the start.
“It’s Never Over (Oh Orpheus)” is a (dare I say), cross between David Bowie and Pink Floyd. Not to say that Arcade Fire‘s sound is even penetrable to these legends, but with that being said, this Montréal based seven piece band is definitely trying new things, branching out of their comfort zone and getting recognized for doing so. Don’t be surprised to see Arcade Fire back in the talks for another album of the year.
For Fans Of: David Bowie, Brian Eno, U2
PS: My apologies for the quality of video, I was unable to find a decent audio of the song. Either way, get your hands on a copy of Reflektor asap!
