Arcade Fire

It features the song, We Used To Wait from their 2010 recording, The Suburbs. Supposedly it works best with Google's Chrome Browser, but I tried it with Safari and Chrome and it seemed to work just as well on either one.

Arcade Fire is an indie rock band based in MontrealQuebecCanada, and fronted by the husband and wife duo of Win Butler and Régine Chassagne. In addition to instrument mainstaysguitardrums and bass guitar, members play pianoviolinviolacellodouble bassxylophoneglockenspielkeyboardFrench hornaccordionharpmandolin and hurdy-gurdy. The band takes most of their instruments on tour, and the multi-instrumentalist band members switch instrumental duties throughout their shows.
Arcade Fire have won numerous awards, including both the Meteors 2008 Best International Album award and the Juno Awards 2008 Alternative Album of the Year award for Neon Bible. It has also been nominated for the Best Alternative Music Album Grammy in 2005 for Funeral and in 2008 for Neon Bible. Arcade Fire released their third studio album, The Suburbs, in 2010 to further critical acclaim.
Without giving too much away from the video, I guarantee a moving experience if you follow the directions at the beginning.
