New Arcade Fire video - Afterlife
Earlier today, director Emily Kai Bock introduced her new video for one of 2013's most resounding tracks, Arcade Fire's "Afterlife." And not to be outdone by the sheer weight of the song, which already had some treatment from frequent Arcade Fire collaborator Spike Jonze at the YouTube Music Awards, Bock introduced what may very yet be the year's best music video.
The Reflektor track follows the lives of three men - all of separate generations - in their lives after dark (hence, after "life"). The family follows three separate directions, running through a maze of frightening reality and perpetual longing for a common love.
Watch the resounding video below and grab the band's spectacular Reflektor LP today on Merge.
