Disregarding the cringe-worthy spelling of the title, this feels like a great return to form for Arctic Monkeys.
I’ll admit that my interest in them began to wane after Favourite Worst Nightmare – but in all fairness, I never got around to giving subsequent albums a proper listen. I never had a problem with the dirtier, garage-esque sounds of their later output, but there’s something about the hooks and structure of this that almost feel reminiscent of their poppier days. Maybe they’re finally finding more of a balance after such a huge stylistic shift.
The video is really well done, as much as it looks like a DIY job. Check it out below, and you’ll see why.
