A Storms Brewing
A powerful, earth-shattering finale to an already mind-blowing EP/Single release. Arcade Fire has delivered a powerhouse performance worthy of everything that alt-rock stands for.
Arcade Fire can be described as the paternal alt-rock band. For most people, Arcade Fire marks their first endeavor into alt-rock, and what a place to start — the band has created some beauties! "Reflektor," "Everything Now," and "The Sprawl" to mention a few. With "The Lighting" (a two-parter of Lightning I and II) justifying, again, why Arcade Fire is such a staple in the alt-rock space.
It's a progressive and growing anthem filled with a combo of strong piano, a charging guitar, and drums — the drums are so overwhelmingly good. The lead vocals take us on an adventure through every second of an uplifting and honestly touching cathartic rumble.
Lighting strikes everywhere and it's breathtaking!
