Arcade Fire – You Already Know (2014)

Scroll down to content


All summer long, Arcade Fire have been surprising fans with unexpected cover songs while on tour. On Thursday, the band threw another curveball by quietly dropping a new music video for the Reflektor cut “You Already Know.” Directed and filmed by frontman Win Butler, the video finds Arcade Fire jamming out the track in a seaside suite as the camera travels around the room to give each band member the spotlight. Whenever Butler’s verses kick in – using some clever DIY CGI – singing portraits replace the vocalist. Butler himself doesn’t appear until the video’s final, fourth wall-shattering moments when Régine Chassagne brings a mirror to the forefront to reveal that Win was behind the camera the whole time (although seeing Butler’s accidental reflections earlier in the clip semi-spoils the surprise). The unexpected “You Already Know” is Arcade Fire’s fourth music video off their LP Reflektor following the title track, “Afterlife,” and “We Exist.” [Source]
