New single: Arctic Monkeys - Brick By Brick

Arctic Monkeys have always known how to play real good rock'n'roll and at the same time have that little kick of adventuress to it, and thankfully in their new single "Brick By Brick" they still do. The song starts with another great raw guitar riff and then is soon followed by the genius of the rhythm section of Arctic Monkeys. There are few other that play with such intensity like them. I love that they all ready after the first vers/chorus combination that is quite repetitive, even though it rocks puts in a little, but oh so great guitar solo. After another verse and refrain, it sound like the song is gonna stop, but instead they go into a slower version of the same theme, and oh, what a lovely sexy version of it, before returning to the original riff.
But most curiously of all, who is singing the verses on this thing, either Alex Turner is doing something crazy amazing and new to his voice or they put one of the other members in the "singer-driver-seat". For a while, I even wondered if it was an actual Arctic Monkeys song, but in the choruses Alex is back, I think.

Oh, yes. I love the video. In true style Arctic Monkeys videos are always good. And I am very glad to hear some amazing guitar riff and arrangements when Radiohead has apparently stopped caring about that ;)

Likte låten, og ikke minst videoen. Takk for at du introduserte meg til et nytt band jeg ikke var kjent med.
Synes også innlegget ditt om DumDum sitt album Sus var hyggelig lesestoff. Enig med deg at det er rart hvordan man husker tekstene til album man ikke har hørt på lang lang tid. Det er vel noe med gode opplevelser :D

Skal prøve å stikke innom bloggen din av og til. :D

Tusen takk, Stein! Så hyggelig at du fant noe ny musikk og koste deg med den den gode opplevelsen av "gammel" musikk. Da har jeg rett og slett fått oppnådd fullstendig hva jeg ønsker med denne bloggen :) Gjør gjerne det, og fryktelig hyggelig at du la igjen kommentar! Ha en fortsatt fin uke :)
