Arctic Monkeys Debut New Music at Northside Festival in Denmark

June 18th, 2013 · Comments Off on Arctic Monkeys Debut New Music at Northside Festival in Denmark

Arctic Monkeys debuted some new music at the Northside Festival in Denmark a few days ago. It’s fan-footage, but the sound is remarkably clear. “Mad Sounds” is a slow-burner with a heavy Velvet Underground influence.

VIDEO: Arctic Monkeys “Crying Lightning”

July 25th, 2009 · Comments Off on VIDEO: Arctic Monkeys “Crying Lightning”

Official video for the new, slightly polarizing Arctic Monkeys single, “Crying Lightning.” The Josh Homme influence from behind the boards is readily apparent but hardly overwhelming. The stoner-rock look is more jarring than the musical departure. This video is clearly a piss-take joke played straight, except for the rising out of the seat bit. The […]
