Arcade Fire’s New Video For “We Exist” Tackles A Young Person’s Struggle With Gender Identity

Arcade Fire "We Exist"
This Is Powerful.

Last month at Coachella, Andrew Garfield walked out on stage in a white lace dress and a blonde wig to strike a few victorious poses during Arcade Fire’s song, “We Exist.” As the teaser we posted last week indicated, the live footage was shot for the finale of the “We Exist” video, which stars Garfield  as a young person struggling with gender identity. The mini movie is equal parts heartbreaking and inspiring, a combination of reality and fantasy. By the end, it’s hard not to cheer along with the Coachella crowd. Check it out above.

Arcade Fire Covers Boyz II Men
What Do You Think Of Their Rendition?

Arcade Fire has been treating fans to new covers on every stop of their Reflektor tour, with songs chosen specifically for each city. What did they play in Philadelphia?

My boyfriend, the world’s #1 Boyz II Men fan, insists it’s a travesty. Let me know your vote in the comments! [Rolling Stone]

10 Reasons We Love Arcade Fire, This Year’s Album Of The Year Winner


I almost wanted to have a Kanye moment last night when Arcade Fire’s The Suburbs lost to The Black Keys’ Brothers for Best Alternative Music Album at the Grammys. Don’t get me wrong—I love the Keys. But I mean, Arcade Fire made one of the best albums of all time! Much like Mr. West, all I needed to do was be patient—the situation was rectified by the end of the night. Arcade Fire pulled off a major upset over Eminem, Lady Gaga, Lady Antebellum, and Katy Perry, unexpectedly winning last night’s top prize for Album of the Year. I actually squealed when Barbra Streisand opened the envelope and called their name, because I am a hardcore Arcade Fire fan and have long been bummed about their bad Grammy luck. (Their first two records lost to The White Stripes for Best Alternative Album.) And the smile on Win Butler’s face in this exit performance of “Ready to Start” is about the cutest thing I’ve ever seen.

Since it’s Valentine’s Day, after the jump, I enumerate 10 reasons I love Arcade Fire. Keep reading »

Must Try: Personalized Arcade Fire Music Video!

You can visit this website to create a personalized, interactive music video for the song “We Used to Wait.” Just enter your own suburban childhood address and the magic of Google images will have you flying over your old street. I got kind of choked up when I saw San Rosendo Dr. and the cul-de-sac where I used to ride my bike, the place where my brother and I built forts, and even my swimming pool. It took me all the way to the window outside of my old bedroom! Hello, nostalgia, I love you. [Stereogum] Keep reading »
