Sexy and sophisticated sounding – Arctic Monkeys are officially back. In response to our previous post, the British legends finally let us in the know with their eagerly anticipated fifth studio album titled ‘AM‘. Named after lead singer Alex Turner’s nod to Velvet Underground ‘VU’ album, the self titled record is an overall Mercury Prize nominated sonic success.
With cheeky lyrics and infectious guitar riffs, the Sheffield boys don’t disappoint. The 12-disc record heralds some pre-released singles and other intriguing sultry tracks. AM offers listeners a plentiful of musical experimentation, with addictive hooks in featured track “Knee Socks“, head turner “One for the Road” and the slower sounding seductive crooner “I Wanna Be Yours“. With only more to come, welcome back boys.
