Arctic Monkeys “Do I Wanna Know?”

The Arctic Monkeys are one of those bands that you may find yourself having a difficulty describing. Are they a part of the revival of post-punk? Are they Strokes-esque with their lyric driven, fast tempo melodies? The only thing each album has in common is the tenacity of Alex Turner’s vocals and his distinct Sheffield accent. The Arctic Monkeys have successfully reinvented themselves on each album and today’s release of “Do I Wanna Know?” follows that trajectory. If this song is any indication of what is to come, I can’t wait. (Sidenote: Turner’s solo work, along with his collaboration with Miles Kane as The Last Shadow Puppets, is worth an attentive listen.)
