Arcade Fire have 'artistic' nature

Indie rockers Arcade Fire always create a vinyl copy of their albums because it makes the recording process feel more ''artistic''.

Arcade Fire want to be as "artistic" as possible with their music.

The indie rockers - who are set to headline at this summer's Reading and Leeds festivals - are happy to record and release their tracks digitally, but they also like to produce an "artefact" by making sure they create a traditional vinyl copy.

Frontman Win Butler explained: "I still think this band, on every level, is still trying to make things as good as we can and as artistic as we can. I think that it's more important than ever to follow through on the little details, even if it's only us who care about it."

Drummer Jeremy Gara added to NME magazine: "It makes me feel happy to know that, at the end of a year and a half of recording, there is a stack of vinyl, just that it exists physically. MP3s are totally fine, but we didn't spend a year and a half recording MP3s. We recorded this artefact."

Meanwhile, the group admit their third album 'The Suburbs' - which is scheduled for release in August - is neither an ode to their suburban childhoods, nor a criticism of their youths.

Win said: "The album is neither a love letter to nor an indictment of the suburbs - it's a letter from the suburbs."
