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''.
Great deals on musical instruments

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."
