VIDEO: Arctic Monkeys “Brick by Brick”

Posted March 4th, 2011 by eric

The first taste of Arctic Monkeys’ fourth LP has surfaced. With the album not due out until summer, the band seems to be getting a head start here. This first single, “Brick by Brick,” is yet another departure for the Sheffield quartet. After throwing fans for a loop on Humbug, their Josh Homme-produced exploration of psychedelic hard rock back in 2009, the boys have opted here for a much more melodic track. The verse starts out with a bit of a penchant for glam but quickly resolves into a Beatles-esque set of harmonies, which honestly kind of recall Definitely Maybe-era Oasis.
