Watch Paintings Sing in Arcade Fire’s “You Already Know” Video
Following the controversial music video for "We Exist," which starred a transgendered Andrew Garfield, Arcade Fire have unleashed a modestly low-budge clip for Reflektor also-ran, "You Already Know."
The performance clip takes place in an ultrabright rehearsal space, with lead singer Win Butler manning a handheld camera. He pans to his bandmates dutifully jamming and then to painted portraits on the wall that, thanks to a little post production, lip-sync the track. By video's end, Butler's turned the camera on himself, via the strategic placement of mirrors, making some kind of comment about art and reflection, or whatever.
Reflektor dropped last October after a drawn-out promotional cycle, and a year later the single's keep coming. Arcade Fire are currently on tour through the end of August.
