Sorry, guys, however we’re all going to must step our collective sport up. Arctic Monkeys have returned, and they’re trying handsomer than a motherfucker. We will’t compete with their complete factor, however we have to strive somewhat tougher. Subsequent month, the band will return with the brand new album The Automotive. Simply yesterday, they adopted first single “There’d Higher Be A Mirrorball” with the brand new track “Physique Paint.” Final evening, they performed the track reside for the primary time on The Tonight Present, they usually regarded actually fucking cool.
Pay attention: Alex Turner is a handsome man who is aware of how you can costume. We knew this. However Alex Turner in a T-shirt and sport jacket and sun shades and gold chain? Together with his hair doing an artfully-sculpted shaggy factor? Holding a guitar that he largely ignores till it’s time to do some Pete Townshend windmills? That’s a excessive bar. That’s so significantly better than most of us on our greatest days. I’m sitting right here in basketball shorts and a Bib shirt, rethinking my complete shit.
The remainder of the band regarded cool, too. The additional musicians wanted for the wealthy, laid-back “Physique Paint” association most likely additionally regarded cool, however the digicam largely stayed away from them. Final evening, Arctic Monkeys additionally performed Kings Theatre in Brooklyn, they usually performed “Physique Paint” there, too, in order that track is now totally a part of the band’s reside repertoire. Watch the Fallon efficiency under.
The Automotive is out 10/21 on Domino.
