Arcade Fire recently released a video for Suburbs’ single “Ready to Start” featuring live black and white footage of the band.  For those who haven’t been to an Arcade Fire show, the vid is a pretty good capture of what goes on and what the band feels like live – for those who have been, expect a flood of memories from your last show.  You’ve got the intense crowd participation, an impossibly high number of musicians playing a wide variety of instruments, some “Wake Up”-esque drum beating, and even some implied guitar smashing from Win.

While the video may not generate heaps of buzz for originality (like the super weird new Yeasayer video for “Madder Red“), it remains a faithful representation of the band and manages to come off as distinctly Arcade Fire.
