Creature Comfort is here!

Arcade Fire – Creature Comfort – single cover/artwork.

Arcade Fire at midnight released their second single off Everything Now, “Creature Comfort”. We’ve heard it banging live with its rather unhinged and confronting attitude. The studio version as expected cuts back on that and lets it breathe giving way to a much clearer but still aggressive sound. Love the tone of those synths and the base line. Love this all to bits! Just an outright banger! So great when the band, as per usual [see: Rebellion, Power Out, Month of May, etc etc], takes a studio version and take it up a notch in whatever direction so it packs an even bigger punch in a live setting.

The track is produced by Steve Mackey (Pulp) and Geoff Barrow (Portishead). Full credits below the video.

Stream / Download. Check out the official video, directed by Tarik Mikou, who had this to say about it on his Facebook.

    Proud of this, here’s the official music video I directed for Arcade Fire’s Creature Comfort. The entire clip is a Sequence Shot and the best thing about it is: it was all completed in one single take. Merci à tous. Good times! Pierre, Olivier, Aude thanks for being part of this with me, we made it arcade hawt.

        Same. I had a listen on Spotify first thing and was like, ‘Hmmm, ok – pretty good’, but now after watching the video with it, it’s finally dislodged the EN earworm I’ve had tunnelling around for a fortnight.

        Just one more listen…
