Earlier this year, a casting call leaked for a “secret” collaborative project between indie-rock darlings Arcade Fire and director Spike Jonze – later described by Win Butler as “a science-fiction B-movie companion piece” for their album The Suburbs, which came out in early August. Now, the curtain has been pulled back on this mysterious project in the way of a sprawling, cinematic music video for the album’s title track.


Shot in Austin, TX with Jonze, who is no stranger to the art of the music video having directed some of the most iconic videos of the last 20+ years, the clip depicts a pretty literal rendering of the song’s lyrics with images of the innocence of teenage life that devolves into soldiers enacting martial law. It is reportedly part of a short-film titled Scenes From The Suburbs.
