Alex Turner’s coming of age has been well documented. As the front man for Sheffield, England’s Arctic Monkeys, he’s taken us from the grime of the pub floor in 2006’s Whatever People Say I Am, That’s What I’m Not to the trippy California sands of 2011’s Suck It And See.
AM is the Arctic Monkeys 5th studio record set to release in September. I’m digging the first two singles. This clip is for the ironic, “Why’d You Only Call Me When You’re High”, and features Turner’s headspace after reaching the bottom of a bottle. Here, sex is either a weapon or something his mind can’t do without. AM is going to be a blast, keep your eyes peeled.
