Arcade Fire Everything NowArcade Fire’s records chart the increasing space available to the indie rock stalwarts, with Everything Now reaching the far corners of the massive venues they now sell out wherever they go.

Doubling down on their disco influences, this time with help from Daft Punk’s Tomas Bangalter, Everything Now follows Reflektor as a record which craves spectacle. And it delivers: where Win Butler critiques the hypnosis of instant gratification on the title track, the record as a whole offers rapture at stadium scale. Butler might not be the obvious choice for poet laureate of culture decay, but compared to the Father John Mistys of the world, this is self-effacing pop actually worth listening to.

Everything Now is out July 28 via Sony; the exclusive ‘night version’ album artwork is only available at JB Hi-Fi.
