Arcade Fire - Everything Now

Everything's brilliant.

Banger


There aren’t other bands like Arcade Fire. Sure, there are others with a multitude of different members. There are others who try to operate on a stadium sized scale. There are others - much less, but still, some - who go for the euphoric at every opportunity. But none of them, not one, do it quite as brilliantly Win Butler and co.

Take ‘Everything Now’, the opening statement for their new album of the same name. Nobody - not even the most beloved - other than Arcade Fire could drop pan pipes into the lead track for a major record and come out looking like they’d not totally lost the plot. Like Paramore and their marimba, it’s a transformative quirk that brings home the prize. With that crowd sampled chant along and their trademark climactic build, they sound huge enough to command their own crushing gravitational pull.

There aren’t other bands like Arcade Fire, but that’s okay. On this form, one is more than enough to go round. Stephen Ackroyd

Kim Petras is a banger machine. ‘Do Me’, ‘Heart To Break’, ‘Feeling of Falling’, ‘I Don’t Want It At All’ - it’s just pop hit after pop hit. "I feel real confidence now," she explains, "and that’s really amazing."
