Arctic Monkeys – “Black Treacle” Video

I have no idea why the last few Arctic Monkeys videos have starred drummer Matt Helders playing some sort of mythic American outlaw, especially considering that he’s got the most British face ever, but that’s still happening. As with previous entries “Suck It And See” and “Evil Twin,” Focus Creeps direct this one, in which Helders breaks out of a California prison, something that must be a whole lot easier than I realized. The clip also stars pretty girls, nunchucks, levitating lockblades, dead lions, and the rockabilly-greaser haircut currently sitting atop frontman Alex Turner’s head. Watch it below.

The Monkeys’ Suck It And See is out now on Domino and available at eMusic.
