Arcade Fire Songs can be triggered by a simple act. According to The Suburbs Songfacts, frontman Win Butler was sent a photograph of an old school friend of his, who was standing with his daughter sitting on his shoulders "at the mall around the corner from where we lived". He added: “The combination of seeing this familiar place and seeing my friend with his child brought back a lot of feeling from that time. I found myself trying to remember the town that we grew up in and trying to retrace as much as I could remember.” .
