WATCH: Arcade Fire in Haiti
The clip is soundtracked by the stunning 'Sprawl II'
The Hot Press Newsdesk, 27 Mar 2012
With HP's own Stuart Clark Cork-bound today to deliver a talk on his time in Haiti, a country still very much in recovery, Arcade Fire have posted a video montage of their own trips there in March 2011 and February 2012.
The group (whose Régine Chassagne has Haitian heritage) have carried out some great activist work for the cause in recent times, including donations and a massive fundraising campaign.
The video was shot by band members and Bec Rollins from the Partners In Health organisation, and includes footage of their visits to PIH sites. See it for yourself below.

Laika’ seems a peculiar choice for single, being the track where Arcade Fire’s debt to Talking Heads is at its most blatantly obvious. Better is the b-side, ‘My Buddy’, a cover of 1940 big band number by Alvimo Rey, great grandfather of AC frontman Win Butler.

Funeral is a diverse collection of absorbing songs, each rich in both its thematic and sonic content. Colours of death, love, life, youth and family are splashed across a lush soundscape that seamlessly blends searing violin and subdued cello with indie riffs and disco beats.
