Video: Arcade Fire – “Sprawl II (Mountains Beyond Mountains)”

One of our favorite tracks off of last year’s The Suburbs finally has a video. To make up for lost time, the band has released an interactive video (you dance in front of your webcam to direct movement) alongside the traditional, building from their personally nostalgic video project for The Wilderness Downtown.

The vaguely eerie, but ultimately fun video with Regine Chassagne front and center as its heroine is set against the backdrop of various apocalyptic suburban staples – empty parking lots as the sun rises, abandoned shopping malls, football fields with search lights, and most ominous of all, tennis courts. The contemporary Thriller formation seals the deal. Maybe the Occupy Movement should learn this dance. Check out the video with a goofy introduction from the Grammy-winning band and those unsettling papier mâché heads below.
