KAPOWWWWWWWWWWW! ARCTIC MONKEYS ARE BACK!!!!!!! “Are You Mine” is the latest release form the Sheffield foursome and GOOD GOD IT IS GOOD. This hard hitting offering shows a definite progression form the band drawing styles right back to the early days of “Who the Fuck are the Arctic Monkeys”, their début EP.
But more importantly the band have brought humour and childishness back into their style. This is an element that had been lacking in recent work as they opted for a more serious style, when all we wanted was songs about growing up and having a good time. If you like your music punchy, and packed fully of clever lyrics The Arctic Monkeys will be like a shot of pure alcohol to your system, waking you up to the reality that music is back on track.
Back to their best the video for “Are You Mine” also portrays a band just looking to bust out quality, fun songs to jump around to (and talk about how much of a douch-bag La Roux is).
Lets all hope that “Are You Mine” follows up from “Suck and See” and paves the way for another brilliant album. Currently Touring with the pragmatic Black Keys in America they are set to return to the UK over the summer. If your lucky enough to see them im sure it will be a night to remember.
