Arcade fire is an incredible band, There is no other way about it. This is a band that shows talent in abundance, and its evident from the very beginning. I first stumbled across them while watching a Reading + Leeds 2007 highlights show on BBC red button. I was in awe, the sun was setting, the sky was red and the music was magical. I had their album downloading straight away. Very rarely does a band’s live show and records match so well but these guys are the real deal.
This video is part of my Top 50 Albums on a ukulele project, if you enjoyed it why not check out some other fine albums that I arranged for ukulele. Like Kings Of Leon – Aha Shake Heartbreak or Smashing Pumpkins – Siamese Dream. Or Some of Arcade Fires early inspirations like Led Zeppelin or Fleetwood Mac.
