Arcade Fire has released a music video to accompany their new single “Signs of Life,” which is from the band’s upcoming LP Everything Now.
The video, which was produced by the Miami-based Borscht Corp, shows a pair of quirky special agents who are on a quest to find alien life after finding a mysterious crystal USB drive. The romantic duo travels via fan boat to conduct their search, which inevitably leads them to find a special metal case, the contents of which prove to be the pair’s breakthrough discovery.
The journey is underscored by the disco-like sound of “Signs of Life.” The song features a dynamic arrangement, including brass and synth, and is both tense and powerful while creating an ominous feeling around the narrative unfolding in the video.
Everything Now is scheduled to be released on July 28th via Columbia Records. Pick it up on Amazon.
