New Arctic Monkeys – “D Is For Dangerous”

At a secret show Saturday night at the 900-capacity Leadmill in Sheffield, Arctic Monkeys previewed the spiky guitars and wry witticisms from their forthcoming record Favourite Worst Nightmare, including “D Is For Dangerous,” which sounds like the love child of first album cuts “When The Sun Goes Down” and the “I Bet You Look Good On The Dancefloor.” Hear it at YouTube (the vid is crap but the audio is quite stylish). The A’Monks performed six more newbies, like “Brianstorm,” “This House Is Circus,” “Balaclava,” and “Fluorescent Adolescent,” which is clever ’cause it rhymes.

Favourite Worst Nightmare is out 4/23 in the UK (4/24 in North America) on Domino.
