Arctic Monkeys – “My Propeller” Video

Words we’ve used to describe “My Propeller” in past postage: “Brooding,” “darker,” “more mature,” and “Alex is looking for help getting his propeller started (ladies).” All of that and more, in that less-is-more way, embedded in the song’s official Thirty Two-directed clip which continues Humbug’s increasingly minimalist arc in video production: from the CGI ghost ship of “Crying Lightning,” to Alex’s one-man lipdub for swoony album highlight “Cornerstone,” to the two-tone/deeply inked run through of this one, which is appropriately dank with muted psychedelics. It fits.
