Their fusion of rave and indie is one of the things that makes them unique, with a new album always eagerly awaited. Fans need not wait much longer
With their infectious, frenetic energy, the Arctic Monkeys are the classic British party band that has that rare ability to fill the dance floor.
The sharp guitar riffs, the infectious base, drum and rhythm, shot through with a keen sense of soul, as it has always been with the best of British from psychedelic through to indie rock. And never more so than with their new album, AM, which premiered at the Glastonbury Festival, a collection of pop songs that stay with you from the first, that have already become the signatures of a summer we hoped would never come to an end.
It’s a sound born from the heart of the city, combining the vibrancy of their earlier releases with a sophistication that’s come as they’ve matured. Hence the strong hip hop influence to AM – their confidence raising them to fresh heights, ensuring even during the depth of winter, summer will be only a song away.
