Arcade Fire Channel ’80s New Wave With New Single, ‘Creature Comfort’

Canadian indie pop group, Arcade Fire, channel ’80s new wave classics like the Thompson Twins and The Human League, with “Creature Comfort,” their synth-heavy new single from the band’s forthcoming studio album, Everything Now.

Arcade Fire returned after four-year hiatus to announce plans for their fifth studio album, on the heels of their big performance at the Primavera Sound Festival in Barcelona. For more about the band’s announcement and their upcoming album, check out “Arcade Fire Performs Neon Bible Live as Everything Now Arrives.”

The band takes an almost dancier tone on “Creature Comfort” which is a refreshing change of pace, while it’s still drizzled with lead singer, Win Butler’s signature vocals, and thought-provoking lyrics.


And this project is a big step up for Arcade Fire. To go from working with LCD Soundsystem’s James Murphy, who co-produced their 2013 album Reflektor and it’s subsequent 2015 documentary film, to now collaborating with Daft Punk‘s Thomas Bangalter, Pulp bassist Steve Mackey and Geoff Barrow of Portishead… but if “Creature Comfort,” shows us anything, it’s that the band’s long-time producer Markus Dravs is up to the task and Everything Now is sure to be hit.

Stay tuned to Salute Magazine for more on the band’s forthcoming studio album, Everything Now, and be sure to check it when arrives July 28, from Columbia Records.
