Arctic Monkeys - Who The Fuck Are Arctic Monkeys?
Label: Select Label
Format: CDS


Latest five song EP from the Arctic Monkeys, who continue their dominance of all things indie

Sheffield's Arctic Monkeys continue their (supposed) comprehensive dominance of the current state of all things indie with five more modern updates on 'Saturday Night, Sunday Morning' and tales of events on a night out on a Saturday. Of the songs on offer here, four add nothing really new and cover ground already covered by the band. And the closing eponymous track indulges in a spot of navel gazing. 'Despair in the Departure Lounge' though hopefully indicates what could be in store from the band in the not too distant future. 'Departure Lounge' even has a whiff of music hall as Alex Turner paints another canvas of modern British life. Instead of the buzzsaw guitars, it's more measured, reflective but the observations are as sharp as ever. Followers of the band won't discover any great revelations here but it keeps the band ticking over nicely.

Track Listing:-
1 The View From The Afternoon
2 Cigarette Smoker Fiona
3 Despair In The Departure Lounge
4 No Buses
5 Who The Fuck Are Arctic Monkeys?
