Arcade Fire

Now thats a band worth mentioning.

Its also a band with 7 members, that should give you a little idea of the sound-range we are talking here. Not only do they have an insane amount of instruments in each song, they all know how to play each of them and they create a perfect harmony between them. I think the first song I heard of Arcade Fire was Rebellion which is a great upbeat song in itself, but its even better if you listen to it with the previous one Haiti (the song ends with the beginning of Rebellion).
– Haiti
– Rebellion
Actually just listen to their whole album Funeral, its a beautiful musical piece. Their second album Neon Bible keeps that great original sound, and adds a little Religion questioning to it (not only in the lyrics, they recorded part of it in a church).
– Intervention
And finally to top it off, they sing parts of songs in French !! I am originally from France, and I study in Montreal, where the band is based at present.
– Une Annee Sans Lumiere [Funeral]
