VIDEO: Arctic Monkeys “My Propeller”

Posted March 25th, 2010 by eric

Arctic Monkeys are cutting the grueling promotional circus a little short in support of Humbug in order to get back into the studio to work on their 4th LP. The current plan is to bring QOTSA frontman Josh Homme back to work the boards. So, despite being accused of “maturing” for Humbug, the band plans to stay the course with Homme’s darker, grittier influence, which works for me. The band’s latest video is for Humbug’s staid opener, “My Propeller.” The video eschews the over-the-top effects of Humbug’s first single, “Crying Lightning”, in favor of a much more subdued, and minimalist approach. Suits the song well.
