Friday evening is upon us and right now students and workers are stripping away their week, their smart attire and are readying themselves for the weekend and we all know how important the right track is to perfect these next few hours.
Cue Arcade Fire’s single ‘We Exist’ from their album ‘Refkletor’. The track is infectious, the kinda of synth rock that finds it’s way into your bones and you catch yourself swaying without even realising your body was moving. The video for ‘We Exist’ is the real surprise and has really sunk it’s teeth into me, starring Andrew Garfield, the video follows Garfield as a young person grappling with their gender identity. Broken by the image in the mirror, brutalised by patrons in a local bar before being attacked and a hallucination that leads to Garfield dancing and posing at an Arcade Fire gig. The video’s message is of empowerment, it’s passionate and is the perfect match for the music!
Listen to it right now! It’s going to be on loop all weekend for me!
