Arctic Monkeys - "One For The Road" video

“One For The Road” is a chugging, sinuous rocker from the new Arctic Monkeys album AM. Its new video is a crisp, cinematic black-and-white affair, and it has the members of the band dressing like they’re in the Rat Pack and piloting enormous pieces of farm equipment across vast rural expanses. I have no idea why any of this should look badass, but it absolutely does, and it builds to a nicely rocking finale. Focus Creeps direct, which should not be a surprise, since few directors make videos this assured. Watch it below.

AM is out now on Domino.

  1. I’ve really dug the aesthetic of the Arctic Monkeys since they’ve more or less become a California band. The whole deserts and motorcycles thing seems to be a nice fit with the sound they adapted.
