In spite of all the recent controversy surrounding the song's video, Arcade Fire's Reflektor train rolled onward last week to British late-night TV institution Later...With Jools Holland for a performance of "We Exist."

Rather than transpose their Arena-sized show to Jools' tiny stage, the band stripped down, but glammed up, bringing along a handful of colorful suits and a disco ball for a glitzy (but not chintzy) performance of the Reflektor track.

After a months-long United States tour, Win Butler and co. are now bringing their double LP to Europe for a handful of dates (including last Thursday's Primavera appearance) before continuing back stateside until late August. 

Watch video of the performance above.
