Arcade Fire. In a lift.

A beautiful, solemn, whimsical band with an imagination that could never be traced or mimicked.
'Neon Bible' performed in a lift.
I particularly like the ripping of a magazine as a substitute for percussion.

Their songs are brilliant, as are their lyrics and each of their videos has a eerie magnificence that reflects their unique musical presence.

'Black Mirror' is another song from their second album. I found this interactive version done by Vincent Morisset, a French Canadian web-friendly director...

It takes a while to load but is well worth it to see the end effects or simply the original video from the band which looks at film noir, surrealism and cinematography.
