Arctic Monkeys – Do I Wanna Know?

I guess the Arctic Monkeys are getting more funky with this new album. This song sounds like they’ve been listening to a lot of The Heavy recently. The track is sparse, bluesy, and while the sound is very different from their usual, the lyrics are just as on point as ever. The video is the really cool thing about this, though. It starts with a simple soundwave-line-thing, a la Fantasia, but things start to get interesting around 1 minute in, and they really kick off around 1:30. Very solid video. My favorite part is when the wingless bird shits a brain onto the racecar driver’s head. Yes, that happens. I’m interested to hear what the rest of the album sounds like. It’s called AM, and it’ll be out September 9th.
