Woohoo! Yeah! Way to go!
OK, so most people have probably never heard of the indie rock foursome from Montreal, Quebec, Canada. The band has opened for David Bowie, Coldplay and U2. Oh, and it also contributed the song “Cold Wind” to the soundtrack for the final season of HBO’s “Six Feet Under.”
That song has just earned the band a nod for Best Song Written for Motion Picture, Television or Other Visual Media. More importantly is that Arcade Fire’s 2004 debut, “Funeral,” is up for Best Alternative Rock Album against offerings by big shots like Beck, Death Cab For Cutie, Franz Ferdinand and The White Stripes.
I know who I’ll be rooting for.
