Arctic Monkeys have kicked off the week right, releasing a new music video for AM’s current single, “Arabella.”
The video, which was directed by Jake Nava, is shot gorgeously in black and white. The band plays in a tiny room, while footage of partially naked woman (so it’s slightly NSFW) and motorcycles fill out the rest of the video. There’s some cool work to be found by Nava such as some reverse playback at key moments in the song, that give you the sensation of watching a film reel gone wrong.
The greaser American-motorcycle influence is still running quite strong with the boys in the “Arabella” video. Your feelings on that may have an influence on how much you enjoy it. But regardless, it’s hard to argue that the video doesn’t look good.
