In July, everyone’s favorite everything Arcade Fire took to Twitter to announce the coming of Reflektor, the band’s follow-up to 2010’s Suburbs. And the internet sobbed with joy.
In case you weren’t already on the edge of your seat, today the band released a trailer for Reflekor, and it’s a little, well, vague. In shadowy lighting, anticipatory strings build in the background against footage of music-y things: fingers against a keyboard, a hand near a guitar, sound equipment. Just as the cinematic instrumentation reaches its climax, the video ends. Oh, did I just give it away?
