Neon Bible

For the past few days or weeks rather I have gone into some sort of slug mode. I spent the last three days in bed making excuses in my head about how I'm probably ill etc. It would have gone on for longer had I not found Arcade Fire on my ipod.

This post is more a tribute to the song rather than the band. It is the perfect example of restraint. You can feel the tension in his voice and it pulls at your heartstrings. This song made me get out of bed and start work on my sketchbook. Someone told me it takes 21 days for something to become a habit, I am really hoping this band pulls me through.

The first video I'm putting up was created by Vincent Moon. I had done a post on him earlier so it seems only apt to put it in. It also portrays the band in all its mental, creative glory!(who would have thought ripping paper could keep the beat?)though I'm not sure the elevator was the best choice of location.

The second is the original video, only because the original version is just as brilliant!
Hopefully this makes you want to do something meaningful with your life!
