Arctic Monkeys' latest single, Do I Wanna Know?, proves their stellar quality.
Do I Wanna Know? is a simple song with a strong and moody guitar riff that sets the undertone for the whole piece. Even the drumbeat is pared down and carries through the song with ease.
The stripped back quality to Do I Wanna Know? is a far cry from some of the more up tempo hits we have been used to from the Sheffield based band.
Alex Turner’s vocals are strong as always and echo the guitar riff perfectly following a falsetto-style chorus. Do I Wanna Know? is incredibly catchy and provides a breath of fresh air to the music charts.
The success of the song since its quiet release follows from the band’s headlining gig at Glastonbury this year, where they played some old favourites as well as the new singles R U Mine? and Do I Wanna Know?
The band’s new album, AM, is set to be released on 9 September this year.
