Arcade Fire
You wanna know how epic ‘Intervention’, the latest track lifted from ‘Neon Bible’, is? Someone on YouTube has already made it the score to a cut-and-splice of clips from classic Russian Revolution film The Battleship Potemkin, that’s how epic. It’s the sort of record that plans to open with a 21-gun salute, and then, just before they pull the triggers, decides to add a few more guns, just in case. In other words: epic.
