[music video]: Arctic Monkeys – Arabella

By Will Oliver, March 3rd 2014

Arctic Monkeys - Arabella

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.

Find it posted below.

Arctic Monkeys took home Best Album (for AM) and Best British Group at the Brit Awards tonight, making it a record setting 3rd time they’ve done that.

When the band took the stage for their acceptance speech for their Best Album prize, Alex Turner made a wild speech that can most easily be summed up as rock and roll isn’t dead. He finished the speech off by saying “invoice me for the microphone if you wanna,” before dropping it off in cocky fashion. Oh, Alex.

In fact, the speech has already been made into a graphic illustration by a fan. Check it out below via Arctic Monkeys US:

Watch the Best Album speech below, as well as their speech for Best British Group, followed by a performance of “R U Mine?” that the band played during the show.

CHVRCHES

It seems like everyone is covering Arctic Monkeys these days. Which says a lot about the power of AM and how its elevated the band a few steps further across the globe.

We just recently saw Miley Cyrus cover the band, and now CHVRCHES add their own Arctic Monkeys cover. They tackled “Do I Wanna Know?” (which the band performed acoustic at Avatar Studios last week). CHVRCHES covered the song for Australian radio station Triple J, for their Like A Version segment.

CHVRCHES take “Do I Wanna Know?” and add their coldy synthy touch, keeping the vocal intesnity but adding different layers on the way.

Watch their performance below.

Arctic Monkeys Avatar

The glow of Arctic Monkeys massive single “Do I Wanna Know?” is in the triumphant feeling of power. But even when that is stripped away a bit, you still got one hell of a song.

The day before their sold out show at MSG the band released a clip of Alex and Matt performing an acoustic version of the song live at Avatar Studios in NYC.

It’s a very different look at the song, but one that makes you appreciate it just as much.

Arctic Monkeys @ Madison Square Garden (February 8, 2014)

Last night was a big night for all Arctic Monkeys fans alike. I was sure that seeing my favorite band headline their biggest show in the states at Madison Square Garden was going to be a seminal moment for all. It should have been their tour de force, their big moment where they finally captivate the audiences that they have deserved here for so long. This arrival was long overdue for sure. With that said, I expected to leave late Saturday night from one of the best gigs of my life, possibly one of the most memorable Arctic Monkeys shows in the United States, period. Maybe that was my fault, because if I’m being 100% real and honest, the show was pretty standard and by the numbers for them, which left me quite perplexed. Read the rest of this entry »

Tomorrow is the big day. Arctic Monkeys headline MSG in their biggest American show to date. I asked you guys, their biggest fans, to share thoughts on the show, and what its significance means to you.

A few of you guys took the time to write something, which is easier said than done, so thanks to you guys that actually took the time to participate. I appreciate it.

Instead of compiling all them together, I’m going to release them one by one, so each person’s post gets their own individual spotlight.
