Arcade Fire - Electric Blue

A higher sonic plane.

A higher sonic plane.

Banger


If we’re making a list of Arcade Fire highlights, ‘The Suburbs’’ ‘Sprawl II’ would rank high up the list. A pop masterclass, it’s quite possibly Régine Chassagne’s finest hour.

In it’s own way, ‘Electric Blue’ is infused with the same spirit. All falsetto and shimmering vistas, it soars on a higher sonic plane to much of what we’ve heard from the band’s new album ‘Everything Now’. But while ‘Sprawl II’ lived in the plinky plonky world of indie pop, this one packs a groove.

Vocal hooks with notes no sane listener would ever try to match hook all the same, while disco ball light shimmers all around. Arcade Fire’s journey to the neon dance floors may have turned their epic moments in on themselves at times, but here it concentrates the beams. Stephen Ackroyd
