New Arctic Monkeys Video – “Brianstorm”

The Klaxonsification of the A’Monks on the ass-kicking first single from Favourite Worst Nightmare gets some visual accompaniment here, with a slinky-clad dance troupe doused in quick flashes of technicolor, spliced with some old-school archival film footage. First mention of Brian comes with a glimpse of a wide-smiled himbo, but the fact that the Monkeys themselves never escape the sepia — and that the tune ends on “See ya later, innovator” — has us thinking they’re attacking something a little closer to home than beach-fed excess. Good shite.
