Indie rock may be miles away genre-wise from the dancehall-heavy radio-waves of Kingston, Jamaica. But don’t tell that to celebrated Canadian indie rock band, Arcade Fire, whose latest music video “Peter Pan” is a neon-drenched ode to Kingston youth culture. The video is directed by Jamaican filmmaker Storm Saulter, known for the 2011 feature “Better Mus Come” and upcoming film, “Sprinter,” which won serval awards at the American Black Film Festival in Miami this year. The video also features Saulter’s signature slick camera moves and romantic shots of Kingston.
The song is a remixed version of their 2017 single, transformed by dynamic Jamaican production duo Equiknoxx Music. Check out the video below.
