Yesterday the Arctic Monkeys released a video for the first track to be aired from their forthcoming new album.
Personally, they’ve never recaptured the brilliance of their debut album, which had extremely well-crafted, clever and funny lyrics and memorable tunes. This is bland and has repetitive lyrics, nothing of the genius Alex Turner once showed so much promise of.
However, I do see where they’re trying to go with this; given they recorded it in California it does have a certain 60s California feel to it. But still. Meh.
