Arcade Fire

I HAVE always been a fan of clever music videos (I’m looking at you, OK GO) but the latest from Arcade Fire really takes the biscuit.

It is mesmerisingly interactive involving Google Street Views of your childhood home, a writing and drawing tool and about a zillion beautiful touches. I don’t want to say any more because I’m afraid of spoiling it.

And if you’re wondering why a science fiction blog is raving about a music video, it’s because stuff like this makes me believe in the future.
