Wasted Hours returns to the alt-country rhythm of The Suburbs’ opening track.
There are certainly comparisons to be drawn to such US-based indie bands as Wilco or cult Pavement offshoot Silver Jews. Bands that put a lot of emphasis on lyrical prowess and bluesy, countrified acoustic guitar sounds.
As with Modern Man this is surprisingly minimal rock song territory for Arcade Fire. Far from revolutionary in the grand scheme of things but this is a side of the band that we hadn’t seen much of before The Suburbs. They do it well too.
