Watch Arcade Fire Host Doomy Dance Party on France’s ‘Le Grand Journal’
See Canadian crew perform 'Reflektor,' 'Afterlife,' and 'Joan of Arc'
Arcade Fire’s tour of European media outlets continued on November 21 with an appearance on France’s Le Grand Journal — you know, the same show that saw Kanye West collapse onstage during “Black Skinhead” and play “Bound 2″ with Charlie Wilson. The Reflektor crew (who did not go by their totally pointless alias of the Reflektors) played a three-song sampler of their latest album: the super-shiny, seven-minute title track, dancey-downer “Afterlife,” and the jaunty “Joan of Arc.” Catch “Reflektor” above, and find the other two below. Note that while the audience did indeed look sharp, AF’s backlash-inciting dress code did not seem to be in effect, so we can all just do as the band says and relax.
