VIDEO// Arcade Fire: Sprawl II (Mountains Beyond Mountains)

An interesting interactive flip to traditional music videos is the latest experiment from those baroque pop Canadians Arcade Fire. Taken from their multi-instrumental, genre-blending LP 'Suburbs' 'Sprawl II (Mountains Beyond Mountains)' has finally been given long awaited visual attention and the result is magnificent. Regine Chassegne steps into the spotlight in the conventional version of the video, which you can stream above. Her brilliant theatrical tendencies come out in her quirky dancing, upbeat, joyous and completely unstoppable! I found my foot tapping along as she breaks monotonous custom, and I grinned as the face less dancers in the film did the same. From 1:30 to 1:45 my eyes were transfixed. It's just an outstanding set of clips so watch them via Youtube up above. The interactive version is similar, but those with a webcam can experience something amazing. Take part over here!
