“The cities we live in could be distant stars/I search for you in every passing car…”
Suburban War is a nice example of what Arcade Fire have got really good at with this third album. It’s a downbeat, mid-tempo rock song. Win Butler conjures up more images of suburban loneliness while Richard Parry’s guitars - pulled back in the mix and almost lost amongst reverb - complement his words perfectly.
Throw in a classic Arcade Fire gear-shift outro (see also: Wake Up, Black Wave/Bad Vibrations) and you’ve got one of The Suburbs’ finest moments.
