As Indie rock songs go “Rebellion (Lies)” is essentially simple in its execution and yet boundless in its energy and intensity. A driving, relentless rhythm track slowly smothered by entwining instrumentation, whilst Win Butler whines and wails a lament to the manipulation that destroys our existence. An arresting stomp that can’t fail to ignite aural astonishment years after its initial success.
