Video of the Moment #240: Arctic Monkeys

By on Monday, 22nd March 2010 at 6:00 pm

The new video for ‘My Propeller’ is a bit boring as Arctic Monkeys videos go – there are no fighting clowns (‘Flourescent Adolescent’) or sea voyages (‘Crying Lightning’).  Nor does it have the brilliant simplicity of their video for ‘Cornerstone’. But then again I’ve always been a sucker for Richard Ayoade’s videos,  especially the ones he did for lead Monkey Alex Turner’s side project, the Last Shadow Puppets. Nevertheless, this slightly psychedelic grayscale video directed by Thirty Two does a pretty good job of capturing the mood of the dark, lurching song, while not distracting from it with anything too crazy. Enjoy!


‘My Propeller,’ the 3rd single from last year’s ‘Humbug,’ will be released on 13th April 2010 on 7″ and 10″ vinyl and can be pre-ordered now.  The 7″ single features one new b-side, while the 10″ features three.
