Music Video for Arcade Fire’s ‘The Suburbs’, Directed by Spike Jonze

Arcade Fire have a brand new video out for the song The Suburbs and they got one of my all-time favorites Spike Jonze to direct it. The video is deep in meaning, relating to the ideas of growing up and how people change over time. Spike does an amazing job of showing the fun, innocence of youth and contrasting it with the dark paths people can go down. When I listen to this song and the rest of the album this is exactly what I imagine. Bits of hope with tinges of darkness. has an interesting write up about the video which gets a lot headier than I do, so maybe check that as well.
